Course content
Division of the renewable resources and possible use of uncultivated land for the production of energetic crops. Solar energy and the modified forms - wind energy, geothermal energy, water energy, biomass, etc. Economical use of energy, savings, recuperation of ventilation and air-conditioning units. Use of heat pumps (a source of low-potential heat) for heating and warming of service water. Information about the European legislation and norms of the EU states concerning technical parameters of outside shells of buildings and interior environment, comparison to the Czech norms.

Learning outcomes
The subject aims to introduce a question of renewable energetic resources, extracting and use of renewable energy and limits to the environmental pollution to the students.
The student is able to decide on the suitability of particular renewable energy sources (RES) for specific conditions, can grow plants for energy use, has an overview of principles of operation and methods of energy transformation from biomass and non-biological RES.
Prerequisites
Basic knowledge of natural laws (physics-energy, biology-photosynthesis, biomass formation, agrotechnical-cultivation methods ..)
