10 Credits SPRING



Aims/Description: Low carbon technologies are an essential requirement if the world's energy needs are to be met without causing irreversible changes to the planet's climate. This module will cover the need for various different technologies that can help to meet the world's energy needs without releasing large amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere. Various different technologies that aim to meet this need will be introduced and then a select number will be studied in more detail. The aim of the module is to enable the student to make a reasoned comparison between the different low carbon technologies backed by sound scientific understanding of their limitations and advantages.
