Renewable Energy, Technology and Efficiency

About this Program


Renewable energy offers three distinct advantages to developing countries: it enhances power supply, generates much needed income as well entrepreneurial opportunities, and helps the issues associated with the carbon emissions. It uses natural resources such as sunlight, wind, tides and geothermal heat which are naturally replenished.

This program teaches the fundamentals, of the different renewable energy technologies, wind, solar, bioenergy, hydro, and geothermal energy. It offers an indepth overview of renewable energy technologies and applications; as well as information on the costs of different renewable energy technologies. Discussion regarding common technical and non-technical barriers and issues limiting wide spread use/dissemination of renewable energy have been included.

Most forms of renewable energy are cheap to operate, but relatively expensive to install, as they have to take quite dispersed energy and concentrate it into a useful form
