Overview

Explore how wind, solar and water power can be utilised at scale today

Recently, there’s been growing concern about the sustainability of fossil fuels and nuclear power, which has led to increased interest in renewable energy sources. But many of these natural sources of power have been used for centuries.

This online course explores how we can utilise wind, solar and water power on a much larger scale than ever before, using the four Greek elements as weekly themes.

You will improve your understanding of how key renewable energy technologies work and the contribution they might make to world needs.

The course was produced with the kind support of Dangoor Education.

This course is intended for those with an interest in renewable energies, climate change and sustainable energy technology, and does not require any previous experience of studying the subject.
