First students of the Energy Water MOOC certified
OIEau is proud to announce the delivery of the first certifications in the frame of the Energy Water MOOC (massive open online course). This online free training lasts 4 weeks, and gives access to a 24 months certification as an Energy Angel.
What is an Energy Angel?
Inspired by the concept of business angel, the Energy Angel is an energy expert offering its expert skills to companies willing to improve their energy efficiency. Once certified, the Energy Angel can support companies in the use of an energy efficiency assessment tool which is online, anonymous and free: the EMSA web-tool (energy management self-assessment).
It is still time to join the MOOC
The registration to the MOOC is entirely free. It is intended to energy experts wishing to use an innovative and free tool, but also to any professional dealing with energy efficiency questions related to water processes, independently of its level of expertise.
It requires 1 to 3 working hours per week during a month. The MOOC will remain accessible until the end of February 2019.
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.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020
research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 696112.
