About the Course:

Throughout the course, we will discuss: alternative energy sources and their associated benefits and costs, Berkeley’s current energy portfolio and sustainability goals, how alternative energy sources could be used to change Berkeley’s relationship to energy, and how students can be a part in enacting this change.

We want our students to know the technical, social, political, and economic sides of renewable energy. Students will know what the benefits and obstacles are to a 100% renewable campus and the relevant private and public sectors in the larger energy world.

A final project is required for this DeCal. It can be an independent research project, field work, or a presentation in any format. The goal is to offer students freedom to demonstrate their understanding of course material and to explore further into their own topic of interest.

It is important to note that a consistent attendance is required for this DeCal. No more than one absence is allowed (provided the student has an explanation) and the student will be expected to complete a short make-up assignment for any class he/she misses.

How to Enroll:

CCNs for the course will be distrubuted on the first day of the class.
