Learn Wind, Waves and Tides online

Learn how energy is extracted from three naturally occurring fluid flows: wind, waves and tides. Strengths and weaknesses of the various technologies will be discussed and illustrated through case studies of specific installations.

About the course:
The wind is a part of our everyday experience. Anyone who has lived on a coast or even vacationed there is familiar with waves and tides. That these naturally-occurring fluid flows contain energy is intuitively recognizable and indeed technologies to harvest wind and tidal energy were in use centuries ago. Our current quest for sustainable energy sources has led us to refocus once again on the potential of wind, waves and tides.

This course will explain and describe the technologies to extract energy from each. The strengths and weaknesses of these various technologies will be discussed and illustrated through case studies of specific installations.
