Fundamentals of Decarbonization is a VIRTUAL classroom course presented by the energy training experts at Mennta Energy Solutions.
This workshop provides an introduction to the fundamentals of decarbonization and approaches to it. Topics explored during an overview of the source and extent of global carbon emissions, different technical approaches to decarbonization, as well as corporate and government commitments.
A key element of the course is that you get the chance to put the knowledge learned into practice through a series of educational and enjoyable class exercises. These exercises are designed to reinforce and extend your learning from the class.
This virtual solution is comprised of two live instructor-led sessions hosted on state-of-the-art training software with video, audio, chat, live polls, breakout sessions and much more!
