Description of the Technology Transfer Centre:
The Renewable Energy Technology Transfer Centre for developing countries is established to strengthen the position of higher education institutions in the field of renewable energies in developing countries and to improve their situation on a significant and sustainable basis. The long-term objective target is to be the leading Renewable Energy Technology Centre in northern Germany for developing countries and to become well-known internationally.

To achieve the long-term objective, a consecutive set of actions is necessary. Three successive clusters were developed; Knowledge, Promotion and Expansion.

In the first cluster ‘Knowledge’ the overall objective is to gain in-depth knowledge about the target groups (national/international) and to establish first contact. The following activities have to be achieved:

  • To research relevant business enterprises, authorities, development agencies for future cooperation
  • To research relevant means of information
    • Appropriate websites, magazines, networks
  • To set up a database with relevant information about target groups
  • To write applications for funding with appropriate partners (depending on calls of proposals)
  • To expand flourishing partnerships and to create new ideas for future calls
    • To promote the FTZ-ALS Renewable Energy Technology Transfer Centre as a partner for developing countries (also second stage)
  • Monitoring/observing national institutions for activities regarding RE in developing countries

In the second cluster ‘Promotion’ the overall objective is to promote the FTZ-ALS Renewable Energy Technology Transfer Centre. The following activities have to be achieved:

  • To set up a communication plan with national and international scope
  • To design a special information leaflet
  • To design a special website referring to renewable energy in developing countries
  • To publish articles in relevant magazines
  • To be present at national fairs/exhibitions/conferences
  • To be invited to give presentations at fairs/exhibitions/conferences
  • To be active in important networks
  • To promote the FTZ-ALS Renewable Energy Technology Transfer Centre internally

In the third cluster ‘Expansion’ the overall objective is to expand the activities of the FTZ-ALS Renewable Energy Technology Transfer Centre for Developing Countries. The following activities have to be achieved:

  • To diversify the core business and consequently establish a second focus/pillar (also for the next funding period after 2013)
  • To enhance the capacity of employees individually
    • To attend conferences, fairs, exhibitions
    • To find out employees’ needs in order to be competitive in the future
    • To offer special training (e.g. scenario simulation, technical training)

These actions of the clusters will bring the Renewable Energy Technology Transfer Centre for developing countries to the leading centre in the field of renewable energy in northern Germany and will become an international inevitable partner for developing countries.
