Course Description

The term “renewable” is generally applied to those energy resources and technologies whose common characteristic is that they are non-depletable or naturally replenishable.

Renewable resources include solar energy, wind, falling water, the heat of the earth (geothermal), plant materials (biomass), waves, ocean currents, temperature differences in the oceans and the energy of the tides. Renewable energy technologies produce power, heat or mechanical energy by converting those resources either to electricity or to motive power. This course will focus on those resources that have established themselves commercially and are cost effective for on-grid applications.

Course Objectives

  • Introduce the basic operational characteristics of the main types of electricity generation technologies
