Test your knowledge: beginner or advanced when speaking about energy transition? This tool is a quiz. It helps employees to internalize and deepen the knowledge on energy transition they gained in previously applied tools.

It also may expand the understanding of the energy transition topic easily and comfortably, as the quiz contains further in-depth information.

The quiz is available online and consists of three levels (beginner, advanced, and expert) with seven questions each. Immediately after answering all questions, a list of correct and incorrect results appears. It includes further information on correspondent energy topics.
