Prepárate para trabajar en un sector con futuro

La Escuela de Ingeniería de Eibar (Universidad del País Vasco) propuso durante el curso 2009/10 la creación del Grado en Ingeniería de Energías Renovables, ya que creíamos que el desarrollo de las energías renovables precisaba de un nuevo tipo de ingeniero con conocimientos de ingeniería eléctrica, electrónica, mecánica, química, así como de las tecnologías específicas de las energías renovables con el fin de proyectar, desarrollar y gestionar soluciones para la transición y posterior consolidación de un modelo energético sostenible.

En el Grado en Ingeniería de Energías Renovables (Guía docente), el alumnado adquiere una formación específica centrada en:

  • Las fuentes de energía renovable: hidráulica, eólica, fotovoltaica, geotérmica, solar térmica, solar termoeléctrica, marina, biomasa.
  • La generación de electricidad y su adecuación para la conexión a la Red.
  • La distribución y el almacenamiento de la energía eléctrica.
  • Las medidas para el ahorro y el uso eficiente de la energía.

El Plan de Estudios que hemos diseñado, se caracteriza por la ponderada combinación de asignaturas básicas, comunes y específicas, permitirá a los futuros egresados abordar el complemento en su formación mediante un máster o su integración en el mercado laboral en condiciones de éxito.

Los graduados, cuya primera promoción ha salido al mercado laboral al finalizar el curso 2014/15, tendrán un amplio rango de oportunidades de trabajo, no solamente en el inmenso campo emergente de las energías renovables, sino también en áreas tradicionales de la ingeniería de la energía.

La evolución y el desarrollo de las energías renovables han estado determinados por los avances tecnológicos y la innovación. La consecución de mejores rendimientos, el desarrollo de nuevas tecnologías a partir de la actividad de I+D, la disminución de costes, entre otras muchas fuerzas motrices, son los impulsores del proceso de innovación. Esta constante búsqueda hace que las exigencias en conocimiento de las distintas materias sean muy elevadas, precisándose de titulados universitarios para cubrir la mayor parte de los puestos de trabajo generados en este sector.
Los futuros titulados se tendrán que enfrentar a problemas técnicos y de ingeniería de lo más interesantes y relevantes hoy en día, pensemos en el vehículo eléctrico, centrales termoeléctricas o la extracción de energía de las olas del mar, etc.

Para resolver las distintas situaciones que previsiblemente se van a dar en el lugar de trabajo, se precisarán conocimientos de materias básicas, de ingeniería y específicas combinados con las destrezas en el manejo de herramientas informáticas de cálculo y simulación.

En el sector de las Energías Renovables operan una gan variedad de agentes: universidades, centros de formación, centros tecnológicos, instituciones, asociaciones, fundaciones, empresas, etc.,

Se ha publicado la tercera versión del Curso Interactivo de Física en Internet. En esta ocasión, se pondrá el énfasis en las distintas formas de energía y sus transformaciones.

29-10-2016: Renewable Energy. Market Analysis and Forecasts to 2020. International Energy Agency (IEA) Renewable generation costs continued to decline in many parts of the world. As a result, renewables are expected to be the largest source of net additions to power capacity over the medium term.
Onshore wind leads the global renewable growth, accounting for over one-third of the renewable capacity and generation increase. Solar PV is the second-largest source of new capacity, another third of deployment. Hydropower accounts for one-fifth of new renewable additions, and over a quarter of generation growth. Meanwhile, other renewable technologies grow slower on an absolute basis, but still scale up significantly. For example, bioenergy is supported by coal-to-biomass conversions in Europe and a significant scale-up in non-OECD Asia using domestic resources. Offshore wind should more than triple by 2020, with expected decreases in generation costs and additions from a large project pipeline in Europe.
