  • Objectives


    To know the different forms of energy production. List the advantages and disadvantages of using different types of energy production. It is intended to introduce the theme of Energy and to make students aware of the different forms of energy production. It is intended that students review concepts of energy and power, consolidate knowledge about different types of energy and different energy sources. Provide students with an overview and technological aspects of different sources of renewable energy. A detailed analysis of the global energy landscape will be carried out - reserves, production, consumption, climate change and sustainable use of resources. The problems that the world is currently facing with regard to energy, as well as future challenges, with regard to the sustainability of energy systems will be addressed.
