Energy Conversion Systems Group (GECOS)

The Group for Energy Conversion Systems (GECOS) is involved in research activities covering the whole spectrum of advanced technologies to generate electrical/mechanical energy ranging from small scale applications to large power stations. The research analyzes various aspects of power generation, related to energy efficiency, economics and environmental impact.

Studies are devoted to support the energy industry, now facing demanding challenges, mainly related to the need of reducing the negative impact of polluting emissions, including greenhouse gases, while maintaining the competitiveness on the liberalized markets. Reference is made to both commercially available advanced technologies and innovative solutions at early development stage.
In support of this activity, there are experimental laboratories for the characterization of micro-cogeneration and photovoltaic plants, small grids, and for the study of the behavior of fluid mixtures.
