Overview

Credit: 4 PDH

Length: 50 pages

Energy consumption in the United States and the rest of the world is increasing at what may be an unsustainable rate. In the United States, as of 2009, 69 % of the electrical energy produced was by burning coal, natural gas, and petroleum. Nuclear energy accounted for another 20 %. These non renewable energy sources will some day either be depleted, or become too difficult to extract from the earth. Clearly something needs to be done to find ways to produce energy that do not use the non renewable natural resources.

This course is mainly concerned with finding new ways to generate electrical power without using non renewable natural resources. Solar, wind, conventional hydro, geothermal, hydrokinetic, and the use of renewable biomass are all considered. Since our way of life is at stake, it is imperative that the known ways of generating renewable energy be developed and new ideas be generated. Working together, we can do it. Too often we have said that renewable energy generation will not occur in my back yard. Well, it's no longer my back yard, but our back yard. Whether it's a windmill, a geothermal plant or an array of solar cells, we might need them in our back yards. And, for all that we know, someone might figure out how to use the earth's magnetic field or its movement through space to generate electrical energy. The human spirit will always find a way.
