Very informative course even for someone with a prior knowledge in a particular segment in renewable energy. Covers diverse energy resources along with economic, and environmental considerations.
Great learning experience! Easy way to get an idea of the work that is being done to better our lives in the future in terms of energy. Very interesting lectures and would highly recommend it.
Is a good and interesting course. I recommend it.

Not adapted to an online format. Low quality videos.
Interesting topics, but no efficient progression. Many sections become an update about UCSD research, not adapted to the audience.

Amazingly broad and in depth information on past and future energy production technologies and their impact on society, economy, ecology and climate!
Thanks, Dr. Mayfield for putting this course together.
I would appreciate an update on the topics and data presented within the course. Hopefully someone will provide and continue this course and content.

Nice and comprehensive information from all the fields.
A real world wide problem!
We are looking forward for even more up-to-date information, and data, and more in depth information, when they are readily available, either as in video information or as text links.

This course was informative and provided an in depth view of energy consumption and how we are copying with it. I learned how to energy supply could be increased to meet the growing demands. However, we should also cut down on the amount of demands.

Fabulous course. Gives detailed insight into all sources of energy presently available to mankind. Only drawback is that it's not up to date. The course takes facts and references dating back to 2013-15. But overall a very good course.
By Christian E L•
Fantastic course, I learned a lot of research and development of biofuels from different feedstocks and microorganisms. Also about other interesting technologies and new perspectives of energy future in different regions of the world.
By Maat Y O C•
I really liked this course, it provided the overall information about energy and I think It really changes the way I see the world know. I completely recommend It.
Thanks to all the great professors that participated in this course.

Very valuable and important course for the day today life. All human beings particularly engineers irrespective of streams have to study this and learn. Most things taught in the course are very useful and important.
By Ulyana C•
it wasn't smg that i expected . too much chemistry instead of physics and explanation how are things working. really long hours to complete a homework but it was worth it! in the end i really enjoyed the course
By Abdul W•
It was a wonderful exposure for me to attend this course. I have found many sustainable energy solutions for people live in the rural areas of our country who do not have the access to the basic facilities.
It's a excelent course to study the all perspective about the energy situation in the world. Covering the poor and rich countries and diferents technicals skills to develop new and innovation s
By Alberto O•
It was a very helpful course! I didn't knew a lot about biofuels, so it was very complementary with the knowledge I already had about other technologies and their sustainable development.
