Course description

The importance of new energy sources. Forms and classification of new energy sources. Non-renewable new energy sources (oil, natural gas, nuclear and geothermal). Renewable new energy sources (hydro power, biomass, wind, solar and other). Basics of new energy transformations. Primary to useful energy conversion (chemical and nuclear energy conversion to internal thermal caloric energy, internal thermal caloric energy conversion to mechanical energy, mechanical energy conversion to electrical energy, direct energy conversions to the electrical energy, and electrical energy conversion to other energy forms). New energy sources for transportation. Storage for new energy sources. Total energy consumption and new energy sources contribution. Environmental impact of new energy sources. Life-cycle usage (pollution and climate change). Sustainable development and new energy sources (damage and benefit from energy use, savings and efficiency).

Knowledge and skills acquired

Knowledge of most important energy sources and their impact on life. Understanding the importance and basics of energy conversions. Acquiring fundamental knowledge of energy modelling and planning for future energy needs considering benefits and damage.

Examination methods

Written and oral exam.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. determine forms and sources of energy and classify them

2. describe and analyse conventional and renewable energy sources and energy consumption in the world, Europe and Croatia

3. determine and compare conversion of energy forms from a primary form to a useful form of energy

4. compare the impact of conventional and renewable energy sources on climate change and global warming from the ecological perspective

5. understand the energy policy and strategy of Croatia and the European Union
