Providing adequate and safe future energy supplies for organized societies, while addressing the environmental impact of energy production and use, is one of the key challenges facing our generation. Organizational and managerial issues as well as economic aspects of the new power generation methods, products and sources are also primary subjects of the current scientific race against consequent climate change and environmental degradation. The staff of ELU // Energy Logistics Unit aim to address the above mentioned issues. ELU belongs to the Sector of Industrial Management and Operational Research (SIMOR) of the Mechanical Engineering School of NTUA. Focusing mainly on fuels coming from renewable sources like biomass and municipal solid waste (MSW), ELU now provides an extended area of research covering new energy products like district-heating, district-cooling, tri-generation, poly-generation etc.

Prime Research topics (areas) of the Unit are:

  • Operations Research and Optimization of Energy Production Units
  • Economic aspects of Power Generation either Power Plants (PP) or Combined Heat and Power Plants (CHP)
  • Investment Analysis of Power Generation Plants and Costing of Energy Products
  • Recycling and Reverse Logistics
  • Emissions Trading and financial analysis using mathematical techniques
  • Energy demand forecasting using advanced computational techniques (Training and Simulation of Neural Networks, Box Jenkins models, etc.)

The above mentioned activities and research areas have been analyzed and/or utilized within the frame of several Research Programs:

1. Joule – Thermie COBER (EU funded Project)
2. TREN - BioHPR – (EU funded Project)
3. ENER-  Lift–Off (EU funded Project)
4. OGGI (Greek Government Project)
5. Privately funded research projects

ELU offers several PhD opportunities and diploma thesis topics on the above research areas for undergraduate and postgraduate students. The ELU supports the Energy Management undergraduate course at the Mechanical Engineering school of NTUA.
