MOOC – MOlecules and Materials for the ENergy of TOMorrow (MOMENTOM)

Event Information

Date :From November 4th to December 27th 2024
Place :Online
Registration :Until December 20th

Discover the technological and scientific advances for tomorrow’s energy production, storage and distribution.


The MOOC gives the fundamental concepts of the technologies involved in the energy transition. It will allow you to deepen your understanding of the challenges of the energy transition in the context of your studies or job.

Thanks to videos proposed by researchers, academics and industry experts, you will be trained on the following topics:

  • Energy conversion using technologies such as photovoltaics, wind, geothermal, biomass, etc.
  • Hydrogen production technologies, such as electrolysis and photo- electrolysis of water
  • Storage and distribution of hydrogen and how to use this energy vector
  • Electrochemical energy conversion systems, in particular batteries and supercapacitors, including recycling.
  • Economic, legal and political dimensions linked to the energy transition


The MOOC MOMENTOM is splitted into five consecutive sequences. Each sequence corresponds to one learning week. Several videos will introduce the main concepts and additional resources will be provided to allow the learner to go deeper into the details of each concept. A forum will be organized each week in order to facilitate the interactions between the learners and the teachers (academic professors, researchers and industrials).


This MOOC is for Bachelor and Master students,technicians and engineers, as well as for people simply interested in energy applications. Some basics in chemistry, physics or engineering sciences are yet required.Two courses are proposed according to your level, with a short test at the beginning to see if you have the required knowledge. 

Assessment and certification

Weekly quizzes and a final test to assess your knowledge. 60% of correct answers to all multiple-choice quizzes allow you to obtain an Open Badge FUN (certificate of attendance).

An Open badge is a way to recognize knowledge, achievements… Highlight your Open badge on LinkedIn or on other social media !
