"Promoting knowledge-sharing and best practice in Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency with leading universities and the United Nations (UNEP) through professional Training Courses, Qualifications, Conferences, Publications, European Projects, Global Partnerships, Membership Programmes and the Internationally Recognised Galileo Master Certificate. "
Training Courses and Qualifications
The European Energy Centre (EEC) has been running training courses since 1975 and has a wealth of experience in education for the renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors.
The professional renewable energy and energy efficiency training courses are organised in collaboration with leading European and International Universities. Participants benefit from the practical and theoretical knowledge of a range of renewable energy and energy efficiency systems, taught by University professors and leading experts in their field with more than 30 years of theoretical and practical experience.
The EEC Accredited Centre is an Independent Professional Body and trains around 5000 individuals a year in over 300 training courses at 21 universities across Europe.
Galileo Master Certificate (GMC)
The internationally recognised Galileo Master Certificate (GMC) is awarded to successful course participants, as important evidence of the theoretical and practical skills required of professionals and quality technicians in the industry. It provides a clear gateway to a career in the renewable energy sector. The teaching, which leads to the GMC, is based on the European Project EMTEU (Energy Management Technician in Europe). Previous participants of our courses include representatives from Mitsubishi, Siemens, British Army, Solar Power Scotland, Nestle, Coca Cola, and NATO amongst others.
International Conferences and Summits
The European Energy Centre organises leading Conferences, Summits and Round Tables, with the support of European Governments and in partnership with the United Nations (UNEP) and the intergovernmental IIR, on the latest technologies in renewable energy and energy efficiency across Europe and internationally.
Participants of the Summits include leading researchers, authorities from universities, Members of the European Parliament, European Commission, Greenpeace, Presidents of leading organisations and intergovernmental Institutes such as the IIR, the American ASHRAE, AHARI, the Chinese CAR, the European Partnership for Energy and the Environment and AREA which represents 130,000 professionals working in the sector.
We bring together leading experts and researchers to share knowledge and ideas over a stimulating programme of events and activities.
Publications United Nations (UNEP) - EEC
The EEC works with the United Nations UNEP to produce a series of publications and articles detailing and disseminating the latest technical innovations on renewable energy and energy efficiency to professionals across the world.
The official technical journal of the EEC is Energy Learning – a leading journal launched to run parallel to the International Special Issue (ISI), published in print by the EEC Accredited Centre and the United Nations UNEP.
The European Energy Centre (EEC) has always been at the forefront of innovation in the energy sector. The EEC actively participates and shapes European Projects at the EU level for the benefit of the Community Member States.
