Live long and prosper - self sustainble energy

General description

We must agree that energy is essential to our survival. Knowing about the dangers of global warming, the way to obtain our energy is very important.

Renewable energy is energy which comes from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, and geothermal heat, which are renewable (naturally replenished).

During this course you will learn about wind power, hydropower, solar energy, biomass, biofuel and geothermal energy.
