TOP REVIEWS FROM RENEWABLE ENERGY: FUNDAMENTALS AND JOB OPPORTUNITIES
Amazing course! I learned so much more about solar and wind and our universe! We can accomplish so very much if we all take that first step and make it all matter!
Very useful information. It's a good course for an introduction to renewable energy. I would appreciate if it has a second part with more technical knowledge.
Excellent introduction - Good presentations and materials, I learned a great deal and want to know more. Thank you
Theory was more than required and more technical details should be included.
