This course will exam the issues of energy sources, carriers, storage, and end-use efficiency. The intent is to provide the basis to evaluate and compare the efficiency, environmental impact, and cost of current and future technologies from source to end-user. The first half of the course will review existing technology of recovery processing and utilization of fossil fuels such as oil, coal and natural gas. The second half of the course will and examine the technical feasibility or introducing alternative energy sources such as bio-fuels, solar energy, wind, batteries, and nuclear. Students will be introduced to basic concepts of material and energy balances applied to regional and global energy demands. We will pay particular attention to energy sources, technologies, emissions, and regulations for transportation.
This course gives Energy Solutions for the 21st Century.
