Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, together with the International Trade Centre (ITC), a United Nations (UN) agency, and the French NGO Atelier 21, launched a new online training module about the energy transition. Titled “Become a Player in the Energy Transition”, the course is free to access and is available to everyone in English, with other languages to follow.

With fossil fuel prices soaring globally, and experts warning that our planet will shortly exceed the Paris Agreement’s 1.5C warming threshold, the need to transition to low-carbon energy sources has never been more urgent. This new course aims to raise public awareness and understanding of the political and technological challenges and the benefits of the transition. Encompassing a variety of case studies from rural and urban settings marked by differing levels of development, the module also encourages participants to consider professional opportunities in the clean energy sector by directing them to more technical courses on solar power, wind power, and other specialized areas.

“I am confident that this course is the first in a series on the topic of transitioning to more sustainable human behavior on the planet. Working jointly on this course was very inspiring and promising,” said Raphaël Dard, Programme Manager at the ITC SME Trade Academy. “This free online course is a new step in our mission to educate and empower individuals and businesses to embrace the energy transition. By collaborating with ITC and Schneider Electric, we are getting closer to our goal: a world where every person understands and can contribute to a sustainable energy future.” – Cédric Carles, Founder, and Director of Atelier 21.

Participation in this initiative compliments and strengthens Schneider Electric’s longstanding dedication to sustainability and youth empowerment. The company is committed to providing professional training to one million young people by 2025 and, to date, over 400,000 individuals have already benefitted from the initiative.
