Fundamentals of Renewable Energy Course


Renewable energy technologies are clean sources of energy with a much lower environmental impact than conventional energy technologies. Electricity generation is the leading cause of industrial air pollution worldwide. Most of our electricity comes from coal, nuclear, and other non-renewable power plants. Producing energy from these resources severely pollutes our environment, polluting our air, land, and water.

This renewable energy course will help you align with the world's concerns about climate change and reduce your carbon footprint. The fundamentals of renewable energy training will explore the various new technologies, construction, merits, and demerits of each type of renewable energy generation.
