In module one, we will learn why sustainable energy matters so much in today’s world, and will explore the different sources of sustainable energy in detail. It also discusses the energy in a sustainable future.
In module two, we will deepen our understanding of how solar energy heating systems work and take an in-depth look at solar thermal power plants.
In module three, we will explore the design, benefits and limitations of photovoltaic systems, gaining a solid understanding of photovoltaic cells and their functions.
In module four, we will learn about the characteristics of wind energy and how electricity is generated by wind turbines. We will also familiarise with the different types of wind turbines, offshore wind energy and wind farms.
In module five, we will broaden our knowledge of biogas, and its resources and types, as well as take a look at the principles of biogas technology. It also provides essential information on biofuel and its classifications.
In module six, we will familiarise with the different types of geothermal plants, comparing them to other plants, as well as take a look at their benefits and limitations.
In module seven, we will explore the components of tidal power systems, as well as learn the differences between tidal energy and wave energy, including their benefits and limitations.
In module eight, we will deepen our understanding of the environmental impacts of each source of sustainable energy, and the different ways in which they can be used to create a more environmentally-friendly planet.
In module nine, we will learn more about the two-way relationship between sustainable development and renewables, including barriers and opportunities. It also discusses energy indicators of sustainable development.
In this final module, we will take an in-depth look at the drivers of technological change, and the sustainable choices we can make for the future. It also provides important information UK programme successes, limits and policy influences.
