Advancing Sustainable Energy

The project aims to create an online program that will provide a comprehensive overview of sustainable energy as a way of supporting global sustainable development. It will illustrate how renewable energy is both an ecological imperative and an economic opportunity. The project will provide an in-depth understanding of sustainable energy, available alternate energy options, and policies, economics, and issues related to sustainable energy strategies implementation. It will also address the biological, technological, climate science and social science perspectives of energy production and consumption.

The project will be in conjunction with the UN Sustainable Energy for All initiative (SE4ALL), which aims at developing affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. The course will be closely aligned with UN Sustainable Development Goal 7 (Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all).
