The Open University in Scotland has announced a new free course ‘Can Renewable Energy Power the World?’
Renewable resources are gaining an increasing share of world energy supplies, with Scotland setting ambitious targets for renewable energy aiming to meet an equivalent of 100% demand for electricity from renewable energy by 2020.
In 24 hours of study, participants will look at the physical principles underlying the various renewables, their economics, their environmental impact, their present status and future prospects. Completing this course will allow more people to frame their own answer to the question: ‘Can renewable energy power the world?’
The course is open for enrolment at OU Renewable Energy
