Very informative course even for someone with a prior knowledge in a particular segment in renewable energy. Covers diverse energy resources along with economic, and environmental considerations.
Great learning experience! Easy way to get an idea of the work that is being done to better our lives in the future in terms of energy. Very interesting lectures and would highly recommend it.

Nice and comprehensive information from all the fields.
A real world wide problem!
We are looking forward for even more up-to-date information, and data, and more in depth information, when they are readily available, either as in video information or as text links.

This course was informative and provided an in depth view of energy consumption and how we are copying with it. I learned how to energy supply could be increased to meet the growing demands. However, we should also cut down on the amount of demands.

Fabulous course. Gives detailed insight into all sources of energy presently available to mankind. Only drawback is that it's not up to date. The course takes facts and references dating back to 2013-15. But overall a very good course.

It was a wonderful exposure for me to attend this course. I have found many sustainable energy solutions for people live in the rural areas of our country who do not have the access to the basic facilities.
It's a excelent course to study the all perspective about the energy situation in the world. Covering the poor and rich countries and diferents technicals skills to develop new and innovation s

I wanted to learn something new and this was a fantastic course to develop a baseline knowledge. The content was interesting and the community of experts added to the quality of this course
por Alberto O•
It was a very helpful course! I didn't knew a lot about biofuels, so it was very complementary with the knowledge I already had about other technologies and their sustainable development.

Excellent content of the course. Only one suggestion Please upgrade the course as its almost 8 years old data . The renewable energy science has changed a lot in this 8 years.
por Missy A•
You get taught by highly qualified lecturers and focus mainly on key themes such as renewable energy sources and climate change. I recommend this course to all professionals!
por Cristina D O G•
It gives great insight into biofuel production, but also how other renewable energies work, and the necessity of them coming together to cope with global energy demand :)
por Jim L•
A very thorough survey of clean energy options, with an emphasis on bio-fuels. Numerous lectures by leading experts in their respective fields. Very well done.

A lot of really great material, and the Week 9 "Office Hours" are well worth the time. The course would benefit from mentoring and perhaps some more recent data,
