The Mastering Energy Supply for Isolated Areas (MESfIA) project aims to foster top quality post-graduate education in energy supply systems for engineers and scientific department graduates so they can carry out their work in projects in countries with isolated or insular energy systems.  MESfIA is a co-operation project between the EU and South East Asian countries (Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia), to improve the post-graduate students skills in the universities of those countries.

Main objective:

The Main objective of the MESfIA project is to establish specialised training via several master courses to combine the existing experience of EU countries in energy management and energy efficiency to transfer knowledge to Asian countries where renewable energy potential is enormous and explore novel focuses in top quality specialist education in RES, intelligent energy management and consumption reduction.

Specific objectives: 

  • Define the methodology of the courses which include procedures and requirements for certification of the qualification achieved in energy systems at regional or national level, likewise recommendations for the interested sectors. Define the best practices for implementation of vocational training, including incentives to specialists in energy systems become qualified and find financial resources. 
  • Help the EU higher education centres to work with their Asian counterparts to solve problems in aspects which may be common, such as energy efficiency in coastal and insular areas. Achieve capacitation at the end of the adapted masters or new master programmes in the neighbouring countries, in higher education centres to request their authorisation in improving the energy supply conditions in isolated regions.
  • Attract students from areas with energy problems and prepare them to work in the energy sector in their geographical area. As South East Asia is a bridge between Asia and the Pacific islands, students from these areas could be included, likewise follow-up on the project.
