Keeping the lights on, gasoline in our cars, and our homes comfortable, requires energy resources. These include coal, methane, petroleum, uranium, biomass, water, wind, geothermal, and sunlight. Knowing how we measure, acquire, and use these resources is critical information because human population and income aspirations are increasing, while access to the means of prosperity—energy dense and affordable resources—is at best uneven. This course will provide the tools and information you need to better understand the energy resources we currently use and empower you to pursue energy resources for the future.
