3. Smart metering - social risk perception and risk governance (10h, 2 ECTS credits)
Lecturers: Andrzej Augusiak, PhD Eng. & Team of Faculty of Electrical and Control Engineering at GUT

The goal of the course is to broaden the understanding of technology-related risks and to present the concepts of social risk perception and risk governance in the context of smart metering technology. In current phase of technological development – known as the fourth industrial revolution – rapid and profound changes are setting up new and particularly destabilizing risks. In more and more complex technological systems that constitute modern life, the risks become difficult to identify and even more difficult to measure and manage. Many of the technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) or genetically modified organisms (GMO) are considered from this point of view. A demonstrative example from the energy sector is smart metering (SM) technology. Enrollment >>>

  • Group 1. (every field) / May-June 2021


4. Decentralized energy systems. Social aspects of energy production and use (10h, 2 ECTS credits)
Lecturers: Andrzej Augusiak, PhD Eng. & Team of Faculty of Electrical and Control Engineering at GUT

The main aim of the course is to introduce students to the socio-political aspects of the decentralization of energy systems. The motivation behind these changes is not only due to technological developments or economic issues. The main driving force are wider social and political trends. Many energy supply projects that are being developed and implemented today assume an active role for consumers in energy production, who become ‘prosumers’, at the same time producing and consuming energy. The shift towards being involved in energy production and deciding for oneself whether it is based on renewable or traditional energy sources is due to the growing public awareness of human-induced climate change. Enrollment >>>
