  • What do we mean by conventional energy vs. alternative energy? Sustainable energy vs. clean energy?
  • What are photovoltaics and fuel cells?
  • What are batteries and super capacitors?
  • How can energy be stored once it is generated?
  • What other energy sources are out there?

In addition, case studies of real world utility applications right here in New Jersey will be presented.
