      The goalThe goals of the course are to introduce students to the theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of alternative energy sources and their importance in the environment protection. Through course students will studied conversion and accumulation of alternative energy (renewable) sources. Active participation of students in the course through lectures and seminar work has a goal to enable students for the further studies, testing and implementation of alternative energy sources.
      The outcomeAfter the successful course finishing students are: (i) gain the ability to analyze problems, develop and contempt testing, (ii) mastered the knowledge in conversion and storage of alternative energy sources (iii) gain communication and social competencies necessary for the work in the engineering team, (iii) gain communication skills for clear formulation and presentation of the task, ways of solving and presentation of the results.
