- Come with open heart and mind!
Renewable energy, often referred to as clean energy, comes from natural sources or processes that are constantly replenished. For example, sunlight or wind keep shining and blowing, even if their availability depends on time and weather.
While renewable energy is often thought of as a new technology, harnessing nature’s power has long been used for heating, transportation, lighting, and more. Wind has powered boats to sail the seas and windmills to grind grain. The sun has provided warmth during the day and helped kindle fires to last into the evening. But over the past 500 years or so, humans increasingly turned to cheaper, dirtier energy sources such as coal and fracked gas.
Now that we have increasingly innovative and less-expensive ways to capture and retain wind and solar energy, renewables are becoming a more important power source, accounting for more than one-eighth of U.S. generation. The expansion in renewables is also happening at scales large and small, from rooftop solar panels on homes that can sell power back to the grid to giant offshore wind farms. Even some entire rural communities rely on renewable energy for heating and lighting.
As renewable use continues to grow, a key goal will be to modernize America’s electricity grid, making it smarter, more secure, and better integrated across regions.

"Amjith stands as an example of integrity to her students - intellectually, academically, and interpersonally. If you want a mentor who'll move you forward, without letting you let yourself down, look no further." Udemy, 2020.
What Students have said about Amjith:
"Amjith was off the chart "GOOD""
"ONE OF THE BEST COURSES THAT I'VE HAD... (IN 12+ YEARS)."
"Amjith is very knowledgeable and presented information with exceptional skill."
In his 3+ years of training (corporate training, 1-on-2 industrial and teaching engineering courses), Amjith has taught 100's of courses and 10's of thousands of students all the while maintaining a high level of delivery and satisfaction from the student he has taught.
Amjith believes that student’s best learn through the application of real-life business situations through exercises. Allowing students to guide the class with their specific situations allows for the quickest and easiest adaptation to new technology and skills.
Amjith began his teaching career at SVNCE as an assistant professor. He earned a Post Graduation, in Electrical Machines from SBCE under Kerala Technological University in 2018. He graduated in 2015 with a B Tech in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from MESITAM under the University of Kerala, India. He is living in India and has traveled all over the world.
