The EUR Solar Academy aims to become a national and international reference in research, engineering, economics and law for a model of distributed production and consumption integrated into a decarbonised energy mix centred on solar energy. The originality lies in the multidisciplinary approach to serve one objective: to enable the large-scale use of solar energy. The training combines practice and theory in the fields of solar energy engineering and building physics, computer science, materials science, architecture and urban planning, law, economics and sociology.
