Course Content

Wind Energy Basics is an online course that enables participants to review, analyze, and evaluate opportunities in the rapidly expanding market for wind energy. In addition to gaining a working knowledge of the scientific, technological, and business aspects of wind energy, participants will also learn techniques for the integration of wind energy and existing non-renewable resources on both a large-scale production level and smaller-scale use in commercial and public structures. The course blends theory and practice, and culminates with a project requiring the learner to develop a step-by-step plan for a wind energy installation.

With direct contact with your professor, who will answer questions and review your work via e-mail, you will have a chance to learn about wind energy in a personalized setting. Resources will include texts, articles, podcasts, presentations, and video. You may also have an opportunity to interact with other professionals in the field who will be available for your questions. A discussion board will be available for interaction with peers.

This course is part of a 5-course series: Certificate in Renewable Energy. The goal of the series of courses, and the Renewable Energy program is to equip earth scientists with knowledge to enable them to take the lead in integrated energy projects and programs. An earth scientist’s unique training and understanding of the big picture — the global picture — provides unmatched abilities to design, oversee, and promote integrated energy solutions which require bringing together fossil energy, geothermal, solar, wind, biomass, and others.
