*Free Online Course: Introduction to Renewable Energy
*
An online course for those who wish to learn the basics of renewable 
energy - including where it is found, how we can harvest it for use in 
our homes and how it can help ease pressures on the environment. You 
will not become an expert through this course, but you will get to know 
renewable energy in its many forms - helping you to decide whether 
solar, wind or other technologies are right for you.

The course also serves as an introduction to Solar Energy 
International's (SEI) Online Campus. It is made up of ten lessons, each 
containing readings, exercises, a quiz and an open discussion forum. 
Your work will be saved as you go and you can return to it later. 

The modules include: Photovoltaics (PV), Home efficency, Hot water, 
Microhydro, Geothermal, etc. from Solar Energy International which is a 
respected educational independent organization in Patagonia, Colorado 
(near Aspen).
