This is the official web page of Umberto Desideri, full professor of Thermal Machines at the University of Pisa.

In my research activities I have worked on several topics:

– Innovative and high efficiency fossil fired power generation systems

– Renewable energy systems such as geothermal, thermal and concentrated solar power, PV, biomass to energy systems

– Hydrogen and fuel cells

– Carbon capture and storage

– Energy saving in buildings and industry, tri-generation and polygeneration

– Energy efficient buildings, building integrated renewable energy systems

– LCA (Life cycle assessment) and carbon footprint studies
