The non-credit course begins with an examination traditional energy and how it evolved. We follow with an introduction to the leading modern sources of renewable energy. We will explore both types of energy from a regional, national and global perspective and discuss their strengths and weaknesses, economics, and current and emerging markets. We will consider national security, environmental, and job impacts, as well as governmental/policy incentives and disincentives around traditional energy and renewable energy.
We will explore how the landscape of energy is dramatically changing. The course will provide students with the tools and context to make informed decisions around traditional and renewable energy at the residential, business, local, and national levels.
