About Course

Energy and environment deal with different source, forms of energy acquisition, transport, production and use with their direct and indirect impact on environmental.


The primary sources of energy in the environment include fuels like coal, oil, natural gas, uranium, and biomass. All primary source fuels except biomass are non- renewable. Primary sources also include renewable sources such as sunlight, wind, water, and geothermal energy.All energy sources have some impact on our environment. Fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas do substantially more harm than renewable energy sources which includes air and water pollution, damage to public health, wildlife and habitat loss and global warming emissions. Thus, the knowledge of direct and indirect environmental impacts of energy acquisition, transport, production and use is of critical importance in preserving the environment and balancing ecosystem.

What Will I Learn?

  • Identify energy sources, energy scenario and their utilization.
  • Know the methods of energy storage, energy management and economic analysis.
  • Analyse the causes and remedies related to social issues like global warming, ozone layer depletion, climate change etc.
  • Create the awareness about environment and ecosystem.
