ESS 2013 - Introduction to Sustainable Energy Sources (3) F offered even-numbered years


With the growing realization that finite, non-renewable energy resources are becoming increasingly limited in supply and affordability, human prosperity and survival may depend on a continuing renewable energy supply. This course will cover fundamentals of sustainable energy technologies and their dynamic costs and benefits as these technologies evolve in science and the market place. Sustainable energy options reviewed in this course include but are not limited to solar, wind, biomass, oceanic, geothermal, hydropower, fuel cell (hydrogen) and other energy sources. The student will evaluate potential energy sources based on its quadruple bottom line of economic, equity, and environmental and eternal implications. This course meets the General Education science with laboratory requirement for all majors.

Lecture, 2 hours
Laboratory, 1 hour.
