Energy Principles and Renewable Energy

Simon Smart, UQx

An introduction to the language of energy, key scientific principles that underpin energy systems, future energy challenges and available renewable energy options.

This course addresses the important global issue of transitioning to a sustainable energy future.

The course covers: basic energy concepts and terms; energy systems; the challenge of fossil-fuel greenhouse gas emissions from power generation; and describes and evaluates a range of renewable energy technologies.  Renewable energy technologies analysed include: bioenergy, geothermal, solar, wind power, hydropower and ocean power.

This course is part of the Sustainable Energy MicroMasters series.  You may take the course as a single course or complete all four courses in the series.

There are two enrolment options: verified enrolment and audit enrolment.  If you enrol as a verified learner and successfully complete all four courses and the Capstone Assessment you will qualify for the Sustainable Energy MicroMasters credential.

A Sustainable Energy MicroMasters credential is worthwhile in itself, but, if you wish to continue your studies, the Sustainable Energy MicroMasters credential could be used towards studying the Master of Sustainable Energy at The University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia.

Learners who choose to enrol as verified, will be required to write an assignment, and achieve an overall passing grade of 70% or above in order to receive the downloadable verified certificate.

This course runs multiple times throughout the year.
