1. Assessment for Module EG7060.
As in the real world you will be dealing with ambiguous and uncertain situations and
information. You will need to manage, mitigate and justify any assumptions according to
your best professional understanding. You must deliver to your client (University of East
London) a professional report that addresses their needs and puts forward your suggested
outline design / action plan with ways to implement that plan. It is important to remember
that you are acting as a professional consultant and must put forward what you believe to
be the most appropriate solution remembering you have a professional duty to society
which may be contrary to your client’s needs.
This assignment will expect you to work closely in your student teams to collaborate and
produce the desired module outcomes. It will also involve you undertaking detailed
individual research and exposition. There are three parts to the assessment of this module,
and they are included in this one assignment in three main parts:
1. Collaborative/ Group feasibility presentation 20%
2. Group research and design, with individual student section – 60% weighting (50%
individual section /10% Group collaboration)
3. Individual mental wealth reflective Log – 20% weighting
The technical issues will be covered in parts (1) and (2) and your professional ability to
manage yourself and the group work will be demonstrated in the reflective log (3).
If you undergo difficulties in your group or individual work these will need to be explained
and justified in your reflective log in the correct format as you will be assessed on how well
you have coped with managing change during this work – See ‘Part C : Reflective log and
summary report’ for details below.

presentations – 5% marks will be deducted where attendance is not consistently high.
2.2 Management and Monitoring Progress
The assignment will consist of five team members, in which you will responsible for one
task each but ultimately the whole project must be joined up. Preparing students to engage
with a variety of people in the work place. It is not always possible to work with close friends
in industry, but the ability to work as a team and meet deadlines on time, this is paramount.
It is advisable for the group to meet weekly to plan work and report on progress. Keep a
log of all the challenges that you face as both a group and an individual and reflect upon
this in your reflective log.

3. Project Brief – Alternate energy systems to meet the UEL’s net zero carbon
commitment by 2030: Analysis and design
As the world are already feeling the effects of the climate crisis and need to ensure that we
are resilient to a future. It is important adopt an environmentally friendly and sustainable
energy technology for the future to reduce the carbon emission. This means that all new
energy systems need to be designed to produce zero carbon emission to the environment
by 2030 to protect the planet Earth from the climate crisis and leave a better work for next
generation and so on.
The University of East London (UEL) has been pioneering future since 1898 from the
second industrial revolution through the fourth. UEL has campuses in Stratford and Royal
Albert Dock closer to the London City Airport and Dockland Light Railway (DLR).
Your team is an engineering consultancy company and have been requested by the
University of East London to carry out a feasibility analysis and outline design for the
alternate energy systems to meet the UEL’s net zero carbon commitment by 2030. You
need to recommend a best alternate green or zero carbon energy generation system from
your analysis then propose a design with required calculations and recommendation.
Project requirements
You need to address the following when you recommend and design the alternate energy
system to UEL:
• Sustainable approach to design that will provide long term benefit to UEL and the
local community of East London.
• An integrated infrastructure strategy to current and future infrastructure of the UEL
and East London including planning constraint.
• A strong commercial strategy and evidence to show that the new system will be
financially viable and meet the legal requirements and standards.
• Demonstrate that new alternate energy system meets the needs of local and
regional stakeholders and environmental planning obligations.
• A clear procurement strategy, safe construction, commissioning, testing plans.
• A high-quality development plan that showcases innovation and provides value
for money for the client and stakeholders alike.
This is broken down in more detail into five (I – V) sections in Part B of this assignment.

4. Part A – Collaborative Group Feasibility Presentation
4.1 Collaborative Group Feasibility Presentation – Due week 7
During weeks 2—6 you will undertake some practice presentation during your tutorial
sessions on linked topics. The Group Progress Presentation to be
graded (in Week 7) must
cover the following areas:
An outline feasibility study:
• Compare different alternate energy systems and reach a conclusion for the best
solution with justifications. Some available options but not limited to, could be as
follows:
Solar PV power generation system
Hydrogen fuel cell power generation system
Wind turbines
Hybrid power generation
• Proposed scheme must be supported by an overall plan, artist impression of any
structures and required calculations
• Within your presentation you must also address the project requirements listed
within the
Project Brief. Additionally, identify key design interventions for the
system to ensure that the alternate energy system your company proposed is
resilient and sustainable for the long term in the future.
You can get the energy usage data from UEL estate management and some useful links
are given in Appendix A. Please ensure that this information is researched fully but please
DO NOT plagiarise this information.
4.2 Format for Assessment
Pre-record and upload the videoed PowerPoint presentation using MS Stream to your MS
Team Student Private Channel in MP4 video format or similar and clearly noted as the
FINAL COPY FOR ASSESSMENT. The Group must ensure that the video plays
appropriately from this location and is no longer than eight minutes long. The slide notes
section should include a summary of the main points of each slide and references used.
