ENGG*3080 Energy Resources & Technologies F (3-2) [0.50]
The challenges of changing the global energy system to reduce dependence on finite fossil energy sources, and transition to environmentally sustainable energy sources, are examined. The reserves, consumption, applications and environmental and human impacts of oil, coal and natural gas usage are examined. The fundamental principles, applications and status of a range of renewable energy sources and technologies will be covered to provide a solid background for further study of sustainable energy.
