Developed for students and teachers, https://www.renewableenergyonline.org is a comprehensive, up-to-date, educational tool for the next generation of renewable energy professionals.
OTTAWA, ON - 12/15/2016 (PRDistribution.com)
SANPRO Technologies Inc. announces a one-stop resource of online learning modules for all aspects of renewable energy technologies. Content creator, Kaushik Das, who holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering from McGill University, says, “I want renewableenergyonline.org to be the most authentic and up-to-date renewable energy educational tool available to high schools, colleges, trade schools, universities, industry and to the green-aware public. The website covers the entire spectrum of renewable energy technologies. The launch includes a beta release starting immediately. We will offer it by subscription in Spring 2017.”
Das was motivated to create such a site when he researched the rapidly growing number of renewable energy technology careers and potential jobs. For example: the American Wind Energy Association says jobs increased by 20 percent to 88,000 at the start of 2016. Tom Kiernan, CEO of AWEA says, “With long term, stable policy in place and a broader range of customers now buying low cost wind-generated electricity, our workforce can grow to 380,000 well paying jobs by 2030.” National Hydropower Association says that industry employs 300,000 workers with projections from a study by Navigant Consulting that 1.4 million cumulative jobs could be created by hydropower by 2025, when policies such as renewable electricity standard are deployed.
The learning modules cover all types of renewable energy technologies: solar photovoltaics, solar thermal, wind, geothermal, hydro, biomass and alternative fuel such as biodiesel and bioethanol. The user-friendly interactive content, aimed at ages 15 years and up, offers textbook standard delivered in popular science teaching style; narrated presentations, animations and interactive overviews with explanations based on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) concepts. The focus of the website is not only electricity and residential thermal heat generation from renewable sources, but also includes liquid transportation fuel, gaseous fuel (such as methane from landfills), process heat and electricity generation from black liquor (a waste product of the pulp and paper industry). The content is delivered online via the Internet and is available now, worldwide.
For details, see the online brochure mentioning all completed modules as of December 2016, available at https://www.renewableenergyonline.org
The learning content for renewableenergyonline.org has been developed and tested in-house and is now ready to be beta tested by potential users. SANPRO is looking for participants with considerable background and technical expertise, in particular, teachers/instructors at colleges, universities, trade schools and people with hands-on experience in organizations in all areas of renewable energy technologies, to beta test the website. There is no charge for participating. “We would like beta testers to evaluate primarily the technical content, visual presentation, physical units, as well as flow of the content,” says Das. For privacy purposes, please be advised that all beta testers must sign a confidentiality agreement prior to participation.
