Description

The free online course on Sustainable Energy Systems introduces you to the practice of using energy in a manner which fulfil the needs of the present without comprising the ability of future generations to fulfil their own needs. You will learn about the history of human energy use, challenges of continued reliance on fossil energy, the time scale for transition in energy use. You will also learn about environmental impacts of energy use, different energy sources based on environmental impact, and global capacity for non-renewable energy sources.

Furthermore, in this free online course on sustainable energy you will learn about the components of electricity, the link between electricity generation and carbon emissions, and sequestering carbon in geologic formations. Next, you will be learning about the sources of renewable energy, motivations for biofuels production, and types of catalytic and biocatalytic routes to produce biofuels and biochemicals.

Finally, you will learn about the thermodynamic principles of heat, types of geothermal systems, combined heat and power (CHP) as an alternative energy source, and Phase Change Materials (PCM) and their applications. This free online course will be of great interest to anyone interested in learning about sustainable energy systems. Enroll in this course today and learn about renewable energy, energy storage, energy generation as well as energy conversion.
