Carlo Renno is Associate Professor of applied thermodynamics and heat transfer at University of Salerno (Italy). Since 1997 he has developed the didactic activity for the courses of Applied Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, and Energetics. He has been Supervisor of more than 60 theses in the field of applied thermodynamics and heat transfer at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Salerno. From May 2002 to September 2007 he was Member of the Board of Directors of the University of Salerno. He is author of about forty technical-scientific papers of which more than half have been published in international journals with referees and other papers presented to international congresses. He has been responsible of or participating in different research projects. He develops his research activity in the field of applied thermodynamics and heat transfer, with a particular attention to the study of the vapor compression plants and solar cooling systems both from the experimental and theoretical point of view. At the moment the aim of his research study is the theoretical and experimental analysis of some technical solutions able to use thermal energy that can be made up from photovoltaic modules to meet the thermal and cooling loads of a domestic application.
