Energy transition and sustainable development
Program of the MOOC
How will the world meet the energy demands of future generations? If you have been asking yourself this question, then this MOOC is for you. This MOOC explores the new and upcoming energy technologies that may help solve some of the world’s biggest energy challenges.
This MOOC is designed for:
Members of the general public with an interest in the energy sector
Professionals working in the energy sector
Students at the undergraduate and graduate level, particularly those studying electricity networks, electrical systems, smart grids, or energy-efficient building design and automation.
This course aims to provide participants with a dual techno-oriented and business-oriented perspective of the issues at play in the development of new energy technologies. It also explores the contributions of key regional and international market players in the transition to more-sustainable energy technologies.
This MOOC on New Energy Technologies, will allow participants to:
Learn how to analyse and evaluate the different new technologies and innovations and explore their impact in the energy sector.
Discover the market organization and the main actors of these 6 topics: energy efficiency, energy from biomass, hydropower, solar energy, hydrogen energy, and smart grids and storage.
Contribute to social exchange and global awareness of the “energy transition” and each new energy technologies’ impact.
This MOOC was developed through the joint and collaborative efforts of two leading French “Grandes Ecoles” (Grenoble Ecole de Management and Grenoble INP) and Tenerrdis, the French leading energy cluster which joins together combining 200 energy firms and R&D labs. This MOOC was also made possible through the generous financial support and cooperation of major industry leaders in the global energy market such as Air Liquide, General Electric, Think Smart Grids and CNR.
This programme is supported by the French Government, as part of the Investissement d’Avenir funding initiative IRT Nano Elec.
