Luca Del Zotto, born in Cesena, Italy, on 28/10/1978 received the M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Energy and Environmental Management Systems in 2006 and 2009 respectively at University of Rome “Sapienza”.
PMP Certified on 03 Apr 2012 by PMI (Project Management Institute) – PMP Number: 1495530.
From 2006 to 2016 works at Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering-University of Rome “Sapienza”as Teaching Assistant of Energy systems.
From December 2017 is Assistant Professor of Energy Systems at Ecampus University teaching modules of Energy System Management, Sustainable Energy Planning and Internal Combustion Engine since December 2017.

Research field is on renewable energies such as solar ORC, Fuel Cell, H2 production/utilization and gasification systems applied to the built environment.
He took part in a number of national and international projects both as coordinator and staff member. Among them ECOCEL (Direct Methanol Fuel Cell for low energy production) and SECOA (Environmental Stresses in Coastal Area). He’s actually involved in H2020 BLAZE (Biomass Low cost Advanced Zero Emission small-to-medium scale integrated gasifier fuel cell combined heat and power plant) project funded by EU.
