Nuclear, Hydrogen, and Energy Storage Technologies

The necessity and urgency of moving away from fossil fuels-based energy production to reduce global warming has been well documented. Renewable energy technologies (solar, wind, and water-based) have been widely embraced as alternative energy solutions. However, like all energy production technologies, renewable energy technologies have shortcomings that prevent them from being standalone energy production solutions. Nuclear and fuel cell energy production technologies address the shortcomings of renewable energy technologies and can be considered symbiotic options in the move away from fossil fuels. Improving energy storage technologies will also be required to complete this symbiosis. This course will examine renewable energy technologies shortcomings and how nuclear, fuel cell, and energy storage technologies may be implemented to further facilitate the move away from fossil fuels-based energy production.
