AG Energy, Environment and Everyday Life

Renewable energy is a core issue in the world today. It affects jobs, homes, food production, and climate change. Without energy, our world would not function. The importance of clean, affordable energy has never been more relevant. This class will have students exploring renewable and nonrenewable energy sources, functions, operations and vision of a Smart Grid. This course will describe renewable energy resources, including solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal and others and it will explore the impact of renewable energy resources on power generation. The Smart Grid portion of this class will include energy storage, impacts of technologies on the industry, energy delivery, and careers in the energy industry. This class would lead to a Youth Apprenticeship in Environmental Science and Natural Resources.
