Types of Renewable Energy
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of the different types of renewable energy systems and their benefits.


Renewable energy is energy produced from sources like the sun and wind that are naturally replenished and do not run out. It can be used for electricity generation, space and water heating and cooling, and transportation. Non-renewable energy, in contrast, comes from finite sources that could get used up, such as fossil fuels like coal and oil. The advantages of renewable energy are numerous and affect the economy, environment, national security, and human health. The United States is a resource-rich country with abundant renewable energy resources. Renewable energy generates about 20% of all U.S. electricity, and that percentage continues to grow.


This 4 PDH online course is applicable to energy engineers and other professionals who are interested in learning more about different renewable energy systems and their benefits.
