Why choose the European Energy Centre (EEC) to sit the course and exam

to achieve Galileo Master Certificate (GMC)?

The EEC is one of the leading providers of the GMC. The EEC also works with UNITED NATIONS (UNEP) and major universities for the dissemination of knowledge and expertise, including:

Imperial College London, Edinburgh Napier University, Coventry University, Nottingham University, Glasgow Caledonian University, Heriot-Watt University, University Politecnico di Milano, University Politecnico di Torino, University of Padua, University La Sapienza of Rome and many more.

The GMC has grown to become an authoritative award in renewable energy and a clear step towards a career in the renewable energy or energy efficiency sector. The GMC also qualifies participants for expert certificates provided by the Galileo Project.

Teaching and the ExamSolar PV test

The courses are based upon the leading European-funded Project EMTEU: Energy Management Technician in Europe. The European Project EMTEU, which we have completed with our European partners, aims to provide the required knowledge and training to allow professionals and technicians to become quality experts, working in the renewable energy field.

The Galileo Master Certificate (GMC) is awarded upon completion of the GMC exam, taken following one of a wide selection of renewable energy and energy efficiency training courses.


12th European Conference


Committee of Quality Assessors

The Galileo Master Certificate exam papers are compiled and marked by authorities and quality assessors such as university professors and experts with up to 40 years of theoretical and practical experience; and independently audited before the Certificate is awarded.

The exams, and the courses leading to the exams, are rigorously and continuously assessed by the EMTEU committee of the EEC to ensure that they meet a consistent standard of knowledge expected within the industry.

13th European Conference



























The European Energy Centre through its technical expert Marco Buoni, participated, as representative of the ATF association, to the EMTEU European Project, Energy Management Technician in Europe. The training on Renewable Energy offered by the European Energy Centre is designed on the EMTEU project and aims to create highly skilled and quality Energy technicians in Europe, please see below the beneficiaries and the objectives.

The protection of the environment, global heating, energy saving and the use of alternative energies are issues that worry both our country and Europe. One of the European Union’s priorities is the application of guidelines and legislation geared towards using all resources to reduce energy spending and to improve the application of renewable energies. The objectives addressed by the project are to provide qualified technicians in the management of energy, their training and the certification of efficient installations.

EEC participated through the ATF Association to the European Project Leonardo da Vinci  ES/06/B/F/PP-149465. On the background the photovoltaic panel in Barcelona, one of the largest photovoltaic panel in the world (the photovoltaic plant is 4000 square metres and produces 400Kw of electric power for more than 100 households).



Companies: taking advantage of expert technicians in the sector.

Professionals: update their knowledge in renewable energies, assessing and all the technologies involved into account.

Educational administrations: didactic material that will make it possible to promote and update educational systems in start-off training and retraining.

Social partners: access training that permits the application of this technology.

Society: get people involved in the protection of the environment and sustainability.

Training centres: implementation of sector training programmes.


To design European training for skilled technicians in:

The development of energy-saving plans.

The management of the efficient use of energy and water.

Collaboration in the process of energy certification of buildings.

The promotion of renewable energy facilities.

The optimisation of human resources, complying with the applicable regulations and safety conditions.
