Description

Technologies for clean and renewable energy production is a free online course that begins by introducing you to the concepts of clean energy and renewable energy. The course will also introduce you to the cleaner routes for energy production from coal, and the concept of gasification of coal along with the direct liquefaction of coal. The origin of petroleum, how petroleum is used for energy production, as well as some petroleum products and the conversion of intermediate products will also be covered in this course.

This course then explains the processes for the removal of impurities from liquid fuel, the upgradation of petroleum residues, as well as the concept of heavy crude oil processing. You will learn about gaseous fuels, the routes for energy production from fuels, as well as the production of hydrogen and syngas from natural gas. This course will teach you about the concept of the sun as a source of energy as well as the applications of solar energy in energy production, and the future of wind energy in energy production.

Furthermore, this course will help you get familiar with the generation of energy from water otherwise known as hydro energy, as well as the roles of geothermal energy, tidal and wave energy. You will learn about biomass as one of the most important resources for renewable energy production, and the concept of energy conservation. This free online course will be of great interest to students, researchers, and anyone with an interest in clean and renewable energy production. So, register for this course and start your next learning journey today.
