Bits & Watts has worked with the Stanford Center for Professional Development to build a online professional development program for electricity industry executives. The Stanford Energy Innovation and Emerging Technologies certificate program gives you a foundational understanding of the technologies that are transforming how we obtain, distribute, store, and use energy.

The flexible program allows you to delve deeply into specific areas of interest such as grid modernization, energy storage, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and electric vehicles.  Courses in the program are taught by world-class Stanford faculty and industry experts. All courses are online and self-paced so you can learn on your schedule. Each course includes video lectures, industry readings, and exercises. Bits & Watts Affiliate members are eligible to receive a 10% discount on all courses in the program. In addition, sponsoring organizations are able to assign their researchers to work at Stanford as visiting scholars.
