RNET-260 - Alternative Energy Generation Methods II - 3.00 Credits

Course Details
This course will be a continuation of the study of alternative energy technologies and methods on the fringe and far less ubiquitous than large scale wind and solar photovoltaic power generation. Topics that will be addressed will include geothermal energy, produced from the heat of the earth; hydrogen fuel cell technology; tidal and wave action power production, as well as, crucial aspects of energy storage innovations taking place that are necessary for the future of renewable energy power generation.
