Overview: Sustainable development requires balancing global energy demands with maintaining a viable biosphere. Students investigate and analyze the sources of renewable and nonrenewable energy and, in doing so, explore the need for multiple perspectives and the need to develop energy-efficient technologies. This unit provides an opportunity for students to address the demand for environmentally sustainable solutions to meet global energy needs.

You will need a scientific calculator and the world's most famous equation. We will cover

  • sources of renewable energy
  • balancing energy use with sustainable development
  • energy conversions
  • fission, fusion and nuclear decay
  • the pros and cons of alternative energy sources
