Fundamentals of Renewable Energy


Introduction:

Renewable energy technologies are clean sources of energy that have a much lower environmental impact than conventional energy technologies. Electricity generation is the leading cause of industrial air pollution in the world. Most of our electricity comes from coal, nuclear, and other non-renewable power plants. Producing energy from these resources takes a severe toll on our environment, polluting our air, land, and water.

This course will help you to be in coherence with the world’s concerns about climate changes and the reduction of carbon footprint. The training course will explore the various new technologies, construction, merits and demerits of each type of renewable energy generation. This training course will also consider methods of integration between the renewable energy with the present grid system. State-of-the-art distributed energy systems and storage systems will be emphasized to meet the ever-growing demands of electricity
