Skip to 0 minutes and 12 secondsThanks for joining us again in our MOOC "New Energy Technologies". My name is Anne-Lorène Vernay, Postdoc at Grenoble Ecole de Management. And I am very happy to introduce the topic of this week which is biogas. Just a few years back, I wrote a PhD thesis about how we can close local cycles of material and energy. Biogas played a central role there because it is what I called a systemic energy carrier. As you will see during this module, it can be produced from various sources and have multiple types of usage. This makes it a very flexible form of renewable energy and I think it will play an important role in greening our energy mix.

Skip to 0 minutes and 53 secondsWith this new topic you will meet new experts and learn about this technology and the market issues.

Skip to 0 minutes and 59 secondsMore precisely, at the end of this week: - you will know what biomass energy is; - understand what anaerobic digestion is and what is meant by methanisation; - you will know what the different usages or applications of biogas are; - have an overview of the biogas market in France and in Europe; - you will know who the main actors are on this market; and - finally, you will know what are the ongoing innovation projects in this field. Six of our experts have worked on these questions.

Skip to 1 minute and 31 secondsSo you will have the opportunity to meet: - Mathieu LEFEBVRE, CEO of Waga Energy; - René MOLETTA who retired from the National Institute of Agronomical Research and who is now chairman of "Moletta méthanisation"; - Lucille CADIC, a biogas product manager from Air Liquide Advanced Technologies; - Delphine GARNAUD, a biogas business developer also from Air Liquide Advanced Technologies; - Valérie BORRONI, a project manager in Rhônalpénergie-Environnement; and - Ingrid MILCENT, who is in charge of Innovation & Partnerships and International Relations within the Tenerrdis Energy Cluster. Have fun!
