A free Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) on the topic of energy transition will launch online this autumn.
The course, by the University of Groningen and Energy Academy Europe, looks at sustainability issues around the global energy system and the urgency of energy transition.
Energy transition refers to a long-term change in energy systems, usually to greener sources of energy.
The course is aimed at both academic students as well as professionals. The MOOC is accessible to anyone and takes seven weeks to complete.
For about four hours per week the course teaches students with videos, articles, discussions and quizzes. In the final week of the course, participants will analyse energy transition questions in their own country.
