En este curso aprenderás los fundamentos de la digitalización en el sector energético, partiendo de la problemática energética global y la necesidad de un modelo más sustentable hasta llegar a entender las principales tecnologías involucradas.
In this course, we’ll go much smaller and focus on off-grid, stand-alone systems.
We will explore the key components of photovoltaic, wind, and hydroelectric systems. We will examine photovoltaic, or PV, system components, and the scientific laws essenti…
Welcome to the course where you learn to launch a new business in the energy, finance, real estate, design, engineering, or environmental sectors, while also helping you create positive environmental and human health impacts around the world.
Energy issues have always been important in international relations, but in recent years may have become even more important than in the past due to the widespread awareness of existing limits to energy sources and negative climate impacts.
Join one of our cohorts to learn from instructors, experts, or each other with weekly live streams.
A Cohort with the acclaimed Instructor Barbara Oakley with 4+ million learners worldwide. This course weaves late-breaking insights from neuroscience with practical new approaches from the classroom.
As part of Class Central’s experiments on social learning, we're organizing a Cohort on TOEFL Speaking. For two weeks, beginning Feb 14, we'll study the TOEFL Speaking Series and meet twice a week over Zoom to practice together.
The energy revolution in underway. Renewable energy is growing at an astounding pace - notably in electricity. Wind turbines and solar photovoltaic (PV) systems account for most new power plants built worldwide, and are essential to building a low-carbon…
Renewable energy's future is bright, yet uncertain. Will it continue to grow rapidly? Is current growth sufficient to achieve climate stabilization? How do related technologies, like electric vehicles and heat pumps, fit in? This course will shed light o…
The development of hydro, wind and solar power is growing strongly with as one objective to limit and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. All these renewable energies are intermittent with more or less strong variability. This course provides the basis for…
This course prepares you to recognize the complexities and nuances of different renewable energy solutions, as well as relevant career opportunities (both technical occupations and roles not typically associated with clean energy).
Energy is the lifeblood of the modern way of life. Yet not everyone has equal access to its benefits, and the environmental and social costs of producing, transporting, and using it are not evenly distributed.
This course “Renewable Energy Technologies and Their Uses” covers the concept of Solar Radiation, their characteristics and how to estimate solar radiation. Design of various solar thermal technologies like Solar Cooker, Solar water heater, solar air hea…
This course will equip students with the tools necessary for economic analysis and quantification of impacts of energy systems. We will review the availability of energy resources and study methods for quantification of resource depletion and scarcity.
This course is designed to introduce students to the issues of energy in the 21st century – including food and fuels – which are inseparably linked – and will discuss energy production and utilization from the biology, engineering, economics, climate sci…
This course provides an introduction to solar energy technology. Topics covered in this course include Sun-Earth geometry, Extraterrestrial radiation, Terrestrial radiation, Measurement of solar radiation, Solar collectors, Transmission-absorptance produ…
