Sustainable energy is a topic of great importance from two perspectives:
(1) Energy impact on climate change; and
(2) The finite supply of currently used energy resources
This series of lectures will address the various forms of sustainable energy, their fundamental principles, and their ability to supply energy requirements to specific demands. Learning objectives will be the development of competence to quantitatively assess the impact of various forms of sustainable energy and their ability to satisfy the energy budget of various entities, including different countries.
