CHE 370 Alternative Energy Sources

This course sets a framework to analyze and compare the engineering goals and challenges associated with various energy technologies across all energy sectors (electricity, heat, transportation, industry).  Conversion principles and technology are covered for conventional and alternative energy sources. Mass and energy balances are applied to compare energy systems within technical, geographical, and practical constraints.  Each technology is evaluated using economic, technological, and social/environmental metrics to evaluate their potential and future outlook.
