Course Overview

The course, energy transition made simple for citizens, as the name suggests, is a course whose main objective is informing the general public about energy transition, its importance and role in society, along with some basic concepts of energy transition e.g. eco-design. In this course we will also explain how to achieve "energy transition goals" as well as a number of problems that may arise during the "transition phase", for instance, the nimby syndrome. The aforementioned topics are explained in a simplified manner so as to make the entire course understandable for anyone interested. In the course there will be many opportunities to test your newly acquired knowledge with gamefied tests such as image matching, true or false, fill the gaps and more without limiting the number of attempts.
