Energy payback time for ocean energy

OBS! ANSÖKNINGSTIDEN FÖR DETTA EXJOBB HAR LÖPT UT.
Minesto develops a new concept for tidal and ocean current power plants called Deep Green. Deep Green is based on a fundamentally new principle for electricity generation from tidal currents. The power plant is applicable in areas where no other known technology can operate cost effectively due to its unique ability to operate in low velocities. Minesto expands the total marine energy potential and offers a step change in cost for tidal energy.

When developing a technology for renewable energy that will become an important part of a future sustainable energy system, the awareness off possible tradeoffs in terms of potential environmental impacts is of highest importance. Minesto therefore suggests the following master thesis.

The energy payback time can be defined as the time for an energy power plant to produce the amount of energy that was consumed during the production of the power plant. At Minesto, a need is seen for understanding how the energy payback time depends on design decisions.

The master thesis will include calculation of energy payback time for a Deep Green device and analysis of how different factors affect the result. It will be possible for you to affect the scope of the project.

What are we looking for?
We are looking for one or two engaged and self-going students. The work will be supported by employees at Minesto but most of the work will have to be done independently. It is an advantage if you are familiar with life cycle assessment methodology although your personality and interest is of higher importance.

How to apply?
Send your CV and an application letter to karin.agestam@minesto.com. Feel free to call Karin Agestam on 0730-56 72 93 if you have any questions.
