New biogas and hydrogen technologies


How will the world meet the energy demands of future generations? And how can Air Liquide contribute? If you have been asking yourself these questions, then this MOOC is for you. This MOOC focuses on biogas and hydrogen technologies, part of the solutions Air Liquide offers for clean transportation, that may help solve some of the world’s biggest energy challenges.

The course aims to provide participants with a dual techno-oriented and business-oriented perspective on the issues at play in the development of these energy technologies. It also explores the contributions of key regional and international market players in the transition to more-sustainable energy technologies.

This MOOC on New Biogas and Hydrogen Technologies, will allow participants to:

  • Learn how to analyze and evaluate biogas and hydrogen technologies and innovations and explore their impact in the energy sector.
  • Discover the market organization and the main actors of these two topics.
  • Contribute to social exchange and global awareness of the “energy transition” and these energy technologies’ impact.
  • Partners

    Originally, the biogas and hydrogen contents you are about to discover were part of the "New Energy Technologies" MOOC which counted 6 chapters: 1) Energy efficiency, 2) Solar, 3) Hydropower, 4) Biogas, 5) Hydrogen, and 6) Smart grids. This global MOOC (the first version of which went online in March and April 2016), was developed through the joint and collaborative efforts of several actors present in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in France.

  • The coordination was managed by the two leading French “Grandes Ecoles” (Grenoble Ecole de Management and Grenoble INP), and Tenerrdis, the French leading energy cluster which gathers 200 energy firms and RD labs.
  • This MOOC was also made possible through the cooperation and generous financial support of Air Liquide advanced Business and Technologies as a major industry leader in the global energy market.
  • The program was supported by the French Government, as part of the Investissement d’Avenir funding initiative IRT Nano Elec.
