WRE OpenCourseWare

The WRE-OCW object is to provide free learning materials in the context of Power Electronics, Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency.

During the development of the work and WRE projects it has been identified the need to provide training material and general information to students, this common material is now made ​​public and free access in order to join to the general initiative OCW (link).

WRE-OCW materials are free and openly licensed, accessible to anyone, anytime via the internet.
