Future Energy Sources
This online engineering PDH course describes the state-of-the art, cutting edge efforts by scientists and engineers in the United States who are involved with research to continue to find alternate energy sources for the future. These energy sources will be of vital importance to sustaining and improving the quality of life on planet earth and beyond. This course explains how the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) leads the world in the conception, design, construction, and operation of these large-scale devices. It also discusses that these machines have enabled U.S. researchers to make some of history's important scientific discoveries, with spin-off technological advances leading to entirely new industries.
Throughout its history, the Department of Energy's Office of Science has designed, constructed, and operated many of the Nation's most advanced, large-scale research and development user facilities, of importance to all areas of science. These state-of-the-art facilities are shared with the science community worldwide and contain technologies and instrumentation that are available nowhere else. As the steward of America's national laboratories, the Department of Energy has a special responsibility to plan for and propose Office of Science investments for the future that will serve to advance the national, energy, and economic security of the United States.
This 3 PDH online course is intended for engineers who are interested in current and future state-of-the art energy sources that will provide good stewardship of America's limited energy sources.
