Renewable Energy is abundant and all around us. It is energy storage, distribution and critical resources which limit its use. This forward looking and continually updated course follows the logical flow of ‘Why Renewable Energy’, ‘The Sources of Renewable Energy’, ‘Energy Storage’ and ‘Energy Distribution’. It reveals the scale of the Energy Transition challenge ahead of us with facts rather than cliches, distilling and contrasting all major sources, storage mechanisms and energy distribution issues using standardised metrics.
The course compares numerous aspects of Renewable Energy with the existing oil/LNG infrastructure and presents an exciting, detailed and fact-packed review of the rapidly evolving and increasingly diverse energy landscape on our planet today. The course highlights the typical technological, financial, and social choke points that stymie renewable energy implementation in the developed and developing world. Projects successes and failures are reviewed in technical, financial, and social terms, showing ways to circumvent past failure and highlight technologies set to break through choke points.
