(EUROPE)

A range of new online courses examining the role blockchain has to play in the renewable energy sector have been launched.

InnoEnergy, ‘Europe’s sustainable energy innovation engine supported by the EIT’, will deliver them via ‘social learning platform’, FutureLearn, as part of a partnership deal between the two.

While they are being targeted mainly at professionals working in the cleantech industry, they also open to the public. And it is hoped participants will pick up the skills needed to pioneer new innovations in sustainable energy.

“The future of sustainable energy depends on innovation. This partnership with FutureLearn is an important part of our plan to embed innovation into the industry by empowering cleantech professionals to develop commercially-viable new products and services that can make a real difference,” said Frank Gielen, Education Director at InnoEnergy.

In addition to courses on blockchain and clean energy, other early options cover topics like solar power and smart grids.
