About The Provider

Alison is one of the world’s largest free learning platforms for education and skills training. It is a for-profit social enterprise dedicated to making it possible for anyone, to study anything, anywhere, at any time, for free online, at any subject level. Through our mission we are a catalyst for positive social change, creating opportunity, prosperity, and equality for everyone.

Alison was founded in Galway, Ireland, in 2007 and has grown organically to become a major force in free online education and skills training. Today, with more than 13 million learners in 195 countries, Alison is changing how the world learns and up-skills.

They are committed to equality and access to education and skills training irrespective of gender, geography, economic status or any other barriers that can so often stunt potential. So they offer a range of free courses that meet the many diverse needs of our learners. The UN declared in Article 26 of the 1946 Declaration of Human Rights that “Education shall be free…”. This statement will always inspire us.

Alison was founded by Alison CEO, Mike Feerick. Mike is a businessman, but one with a difference. He believes in social impact, and that you can build a financially successful business focused on meeting a huge global social need, making education and skills training more accessible for everyone. He invites anyone who believes that too, to support the Alison mission.

Alison is free of charge to you. But it’s still a business – albeit a socially-focused one. We are a social enterprise making our money through advertising, merchandise, and the sale of Certificates and Diplomas, should a graduate choose to buy one.

The course provides an in-depth but clear introduction to solar technology, the consequences of using fossil fuels, and how to encourage the use of solar power. It will first teach you about the most important technologies that are used to capture the solar energy, and how they can be implemented in homes, offices, schools, factories, and farms. This will make you aware of what you can do in the main areas of your life to spread solar technology further.

You will then learn important points about how these technologies lessen the soot, smog, acid rain, and mercury poisoning that are currently the result of burning fossil fuels. The course will then teach you about the barriers that prevent more people from accessing and utilizing solar energy. You will introduced to innovative methods for encouraging the use of solar energy worldwide, and be shown what you can do to continue this effort.

If you want to invest in solar power, begin your journey as a solar technology developer, or even just learn more about solar power so that you can make informed arguments about it and encourage its use, then this is the course for you. The future of our planet depends not just on having solar technology itself, but on having more people who really understand it and can intelligently promote it. In the 2 hours it takes to complete this course, you can become one such person. So why wait?
