Energy is essential for the organization of society, for transportation, to maintain the proper temperature in our homes in winter and summer, and for the operation of industry, farms and offices. In spite of everything, many energy resources are finite and, at higher levels, energy consumption is, in general, a source of pollution.PresentationThe sustainability of the natural environment and the need to guarantee security of supply require using less fossil fuels, using them in a smarter way and developing alternatives. This Doctoral Program was born with a deeply interdisciplinary spirit, starting from the collaboration between fourteen departments of this University, one of its basic objectives being the integration of the rest of the departments or institutions that are involved in the field of renewable energies. of our Autonomous Community. The general objectives of this doctorate are to train specialist professionals in the field of renewable energy and sustainability to meet the needs of society in this field. The doctors will be professionals who will be able to exercise both a business and an academic role. At the same time, it is intended to cover the need for specialist researchers in renewable energy and sustainability who can exercise their research role in the field of energy efficiency and different renewable energies. This multidisciplinary preparation focuses in particular on topics such as solar energy, biomass, agro-energy and wind and tidal energy, among others. A global project would be formulated that would include from the technical design of the facilities through realistic process modeling, the return time evaluation, the study of energy efficiency and viability, its energy sustainability and, in the latter case, the construction of an energy system and its subsequent quality control and monitoring.ProfileThe entry profile to the Doctoral Program in Renewable Energies and Energy Sustainability, without training complements, will generally be from Master's studies:Branch of Sciences: Master in Aquaculture; Master in Biodiversity and conservation of the natural environment; Master in Marine Biology; Master in Biotechnology; Master in Science and Technology of Colloids and Interfaces; Master in Materials Science and Technology; Master in Renewable Energies; Master in Mathematical Engineering; Master in Nuclear and Particle Physics and its technological and medical applications; Master in Photonics and Laser Technologies; Master in Mathematics; Master's degree environment and Natural Resources; Master in Advanced Chemistry; Master in Organic Chemistry; Master in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modeling; Master in Statistical Techniques.
