This Low Carbon Power Technology - Micro-credential course at Trinity College Dublin will appeal to working professionals in the public or private sector responsible for air quality monitoring and assessment, with responsibilities in air quality reporting, or who have a role in air pollution mitigation and adaptation in either the indoor or outdoor environment.


Interested learners will be introduced to the field of air pollution science, identifying the current challenges in the field and key background knowledge in the provision of clean air for society and the environment. It explores the use of air pollution modelling to predict concentrations in various settings and to assess the impacts of policy changes, modern technology, or developments.

Why should I take this Micro-credential?

  • Air pollution represents a global health challenge and is directly contributing to climate change. It is present in both outdoor and indoor environments. To address air pollution effectively, we need to fully understand the complex mix of pollutants we must deal with.
  • This Low Carbon Power Technology - Micro-credential course at Trinity College Dublin provides a valuable insight into air pollutants, focusing on how we measure and assess the challenge at individual, local, national, and global levels. This course provides you with the skills to effectively monitor campaigns, perform informed assessment studies, and design or select appropriate control technologies and strategies to improve air quality.

Programme Structure

What will I learn? 

  • Students will learn to analyse energy cycles for the important configurations of steam plants and gas turbines, including analysis of component performance including pumps, compressors, turbines, heat exchangers and combustors. 
  • You will learn how to analyse advanced natural gas turbine power plants including cogeneration plants, trigeneration plants, hybrid GT Fuel cell plants and combined heat and power. 
  • Students will learn about technology relevant to waste-to-energy and renewable energies including gasification, anaerobic digestion, pyrolysis, cogeneration gas turbines, biomass combustors. 
  • Students will learn the importance of effective storage as part of decarbonising energy and will analyse these systems to determine the overall round-trip efficiency of energy storage to judge their viability.
