This course explores various emerging technologies related to the needs for renewable energy demand, supply and processing. It includes topics such as wind, solar, geothermal and biomass energy resources and processing technologies. Energy demands and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in New Zealand as well as energy storage technologies will also be discussed. This course will also discuss the applications of catalysis in the production of energy carriers, starting at a basic level, and includes sections on adsorption and surface science, catalytic kinetics, evaluation on the modern catalytic processes in oil/gas refinery and studying key characteristics of emerging nanomaterials that enable them to become an effective catalyst in energy applications.
