Summary / Abstract: As stated by the European Green Deal, the transition to low-emission or near-zero energy systems, equipped with modern and efficient structures, represents a priority addressed at the European level, from the technological, organizational, and educational point of view. One of the challenges that support the demand for technical specialists for a sustainable future in the field of renewable energy and green mobility is to keep up with the evolution of scientific results, equipment, and developed strategies. In this respect, the European educational systems are interested to develop specific competencies, starting from primary and secondary levels. In order to support the skills acquired in the classrooms, the interventions of academic teachers and scientific researchers are relevant for the dissemination of scientific developments at the international level. In this context, in the frame of the CONNECT project, a particular science action has been developed, oriented on “Sustainable future: solar energy and green mobility”. The volume of information brings to the attention of young people theoretical elements in the field of solar energy, applications with photovoltaic systems, and possibilities of storing photovoltaic energy in hydrogen production. Targeting also to stimulate the orientation of youngers toward science and technology, the most efficient application relied on photovoltaic systems in Romania are presented, as well as those developed in Valahia University of Targoviste. In addition, an important emphasis is placed on the possibilities for developing ecological mobility.
