Climate change calls for radical re-thinking of a sustainable environment – ultimately, a change towards a 100% renewable energy society. But is this possible? This course examines the technical, economic, political, and social aspects of renewable energy and its link with culture. Different renewable energy technologies (wind, solar, hydro, biomass, etc.) are explored, and the strengths and weaknesses of different policy options (feed-in tariffs, quotas, etc.) are discussed.
