SYST 6820 AssessingSustainable Energy Technologies focuses on the technological, cost, and environmental “fundamentals” of emerging sources of energy, including solar, wind, biomass, oceanic, geothermal, hydropower, fuel cell (hydrogen), nuclear, and other more exotic energy sources. A premise of the course is that a sustainable energy technology must both be technically feasible and economically viable. We consequently investigate the technological promise and progress of each technology, as well as its economic opportunities and challenges. At the conclusion of the course, students will have a solid understanding of emerging energy sources.
The objective of this course is to provide participants with a foundation in the technological and economic fundamentals of important and emerging sustainable energy technologies. As gasoline prices soar, and as the need for viable alternatives to fossil fuels accelerates, knowledge about sustainable energy technologies is growing rapidly in importance. Questions that you will be answer after completing this course include:
Questions? Concerns? Queries? Quips? Quotes? Conundrums?
