Globe Warming to Clean Energy Education

Desire for education in the Clean and Renewable Energy Field is Growing!




Ottawa, January 19 - Willis College of Business and Technology is pleased to announce a three-fold increase in enrollment in its Clean Energy education courses compared to last year. In its 4-year history, the e-learning program has seen considerable growth - providing training for professionals in diverse locations across Canada and throughout the world.

Part of the appeal is largely due to the fact that The Willis College Clean Energy programs not only provide knowledge in the available technologies - solar, wind, hydro, geothermal, etc - they provide practical skills on how to quantify the feasibility of those projects in technical, financial as well as environmental terms as compared to conventional energy projects.

"Considering the urgency to act on global warming, we don't need more government sponsored R & D in futuristic concept energy technologies before taking action," says Program Director Frederic Pouyot. "What we have can be applied right now and it is, on the lifecycle basis, already competitive in most instances. Just like with electronics, massive deployment in clean/renewable energy project will trigger cost reductions from the industry itself with little need from government assistance in R&D"

Organizations like the African Energy Policy Research Network would agree. Sixteen of their members have recently enrolled in the e-learning courses. Following the partnership with IEEE, the Association of Energy Engineers have also recently partnered with Willis College to incorporate the program in their "24/7 Online Seminar Program".

Educational institutions in Africa, India and China have expressed interested in partnering with the College and Frederic Pouyot says he is also actively working with Canadian and US universities to incorporate Clean Energy courses into Masters Programs in Business and Project Management.
