Water Desalination Using Renewable Energy
Global demand for water continues to increase while freshwater sources are becoming more scarce due to increasing demand for natural resources and the impacts of climate change. Desalination of seawater and brackish water can be used to augment the increasing demand for fresh water supplies. Although desalination is a very energy intensive process, declining renewable energy technology deployment costs are expected to bring this cost down in the coming years.
This course focuses on water desalination based on the use of renewable energy. It reviews the primary desalination processes, including the energy requirements, and relates their use to a suitable renewable energy technology.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of ten (10) questions to earn 2 PDH credits.
This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Overview of global water usage and desalination
- Review of desalination processes, their relative benefits, and the associated energy requirements
- Assessment of renewable energy and how each can be tailored to water desalination
- Discussion of trends and technology needs in water desalination and renewable energy
