Energy Water project: a MOOC to become an Energy Angel
The Energy Water project, for a better energy efficiency of European companies
As a project funded under the H2020 European program, the Energy Water project aims to a better energy efficiency of water processes in European companies. For this, the two main outputs of the projects are:
- The EMSA web-tool (Energy management self-assessment), that enables companies from EU to perform a self-assessment of their water processes, and obtain a benchmark and improvement recommendations;
- And the complementary Energy Angels network, composed of energy experts able to support companies in the use of EMSA, and in the implementation of the identified solutions.
Access to the EMSA web-tool on http://energywater-emsa.eu.
A MOOC to train more Energy Angels
From the beginning of the project, more than 150 energy experts have been trained on the tool during in-person trainings sessions or webinars. From them, almost a hundred have joined the Energy Angels network. A certification is required in order to support companies in the use of EMSA, delivered at the end of the training.
To enable more energy experts from all Europe to become Energy Angels and join the network, OIEau has designed a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) to become certified on providing EMSA support. Entirely free, this course will take place in October 2018. It lasts 4 weeks and requires from 1 to 3 hours of work per week, according on your current level of expertise:
- Week 1 : Basics on energy management
- Week 2 : Energy audits and improvement assessment
- Week 3 : EMSA web-tool
- Week 4 : case-study
At the end of the MOOC, a test has to be fulfilled in order to obtain the certification, delivered by OIEau as a training centre.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020
research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 696112.
