      The goalThe aim of this course is to provide students with basic theoretical knowledge of existing resources of bio renewable and renewable energy sources as a mainstream form of renewable energy. Another aim of the course is that students will acquire theoretical and practical knowledge about the possibilities of conversion and energy storage of bio renewable and renewable energy sources using different types of electrochemical power sources and converters.
      The outcomeAfter successful overcoming the course, students are: (a) acquire basic theoretical knowledge which enables them to continue to study the problem of bio renewable and renewable energy sources, as well as the conversion and storage of renewable sources in electric energy, (b) have mastered the basic skills for selecting and practical application of existing electrochemical and renewable energy sources, (v) acquire communication and social skills in terms of looking at the problem and setting, as well as the necessity of teamwork operation.
