Climate change is an urgent global challenge demanding engineering solutions and large-scale, systems-oriented coordination. In Sustainable Energy, you’ll join thousands of global learners in examining conventional and renewable energy generation technologies, studying how they are deployed throughout the world, and evaluating their roles in the future energy landscape. Technologies include solar power, wind power, storage, nuclear power, hydropower, and bioenergy.

In addition to technological components, you’ll become familiar with the economic, political, and social dimensions of energy project planning. Professionals from diverse backgrounds must work together to determine pathways to decarbonization amidst scientific uncertainty and unique geopolitical challenges. You will be presented with advanced tools and strategies to explore pathways to decarbonization in specific contexts, and to build consensus among stakeholders.

The course is instructed by Michael Golay, Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Additional experts in various technologies will offer guest lectures, including:

Dr. Patrick Brown, National Renewable Energy Lab

Dr. Diane Rigos, MIT Energy Initiative

Dr. Alex Kalmikov, Independent Consultant

Dr. Francis O' Sullivan, Orsted North America

Dr. Charles Forsberg, MIT Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering

Dr. Donald Sadoway, MIT Department of Materials Science and Engineering

Dr. Dennis Whyte, MIT Plasma Science and Fusion Center

Dr. Zach Hartwig, MIT Plasma Science and Fusion Center

Dr. Gregory Stephanopoulos, MIT Department of Chemical Engineering

Dr. Vrushank Phadnis, MIT Department of Mechanical Engineering

Dr. Jessika Trancik, MIT Institute for Data, Systems, and Society

This is the course as taught to MIT students remotely during Fall 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

¿Quién puede hacer este curso?

Lamentablemente, las personas de uno o más de los siguientes países o regiones no podrán registrarse para este curso: Irán, Cuba y la región de Crimea en Ucrania. Si bien edX consiguió licencias de la Oficina de Control de Activos Extranjeros de los EE. UU. (U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control, OFAC) para ofrecer nuestros cursos a personas en estos países y regiones, las licencias que hemos recibido no son lo suficientemente amplias como para permitirnos dictar este curso en todas las ubicaciones. edX lamenta profundamente que las sanciones estadounidenses impidan que ofrezcamos todos nuestros cursos a cualquier persona, sin importar dónde viva.
