MSE/ER C226: Photovoltaic Materials

This technical course focuses on the fundamentals of photovoltaic (PV)
energy conversion with respect to the physical principles of operation
and design of efficient semiconductor solar cell devices. Incorporating
ideas from a variety of disciplines, the course aims to equip students
with the concepts and analytical skills necessary to assess the utility
and viability of various modern PV technologies in the context of a
growing global renewable energy market. Traditional materials science
and device physics are integrated with the practical issues of
connectivity, cost and market analysis, and policy considerations to
provide a complete picture of the engineering and development of modern
PV systems. Background in solid state physics or
semiconductor electronics is strongly recommended.

ER 100: Energy and Society

In this course, you will develop an understanding ­ and a real
working knowledge ­ of our energy technologies, policies, and
options. This will include analysis of the different opportunities and
impacts of energy systems that exist within and between groups defined
by national, regional, household, ethnic, gender distinctions. Analysis
of the range of current and future energy choices will be stressed, as
well as the role of energy in determining local environmental conditions, and the global climate.

Sustainable Energy Options for Kosovo: An analysis of resource availability and cost

Headline: link to the subject:

 Today Kosovo faces critical energy and development choices that will impact the energy supply available to meet basic needs, and provide for economic growth.  These choices will also impact the health of the population, determine the job creation potential of the energy sector, and impact the wider regional role that Kosovo may play in the European Community and European Union.
