Supply Development Program
Manage the capacity building of developing country’s industries
to produce appropriate RE equipment and services at a reasonable price
for national large-scale RE electrification programs.
far, there is neither a significant production of appropriate RE equipment
nor a functioning network for machinery spare parts and maintenance
in developing countries. Thus, developing countries depend on costly
foreign imports of equipment and know-how, a formidable barrier to RE
a remedy, RforD will establish a simplified local RE equipment manufacturing
industry to supply a large number of small, technically simple and reliable
RE production units (i.e. wind and SHP turbines, PV cells, biogas equipment)
at an affordable price for the local or regional market, thus creating
a productive infrastructure built up through technology transfer.
EU RET industry in cooperation with its Chinese partners provides the
technological know-how, supplies production plants, as well as production
engineering while benefiting from royalty revenues. The required engineering
skills are to be transferred to locals by Chinese experts if not locally
Production Site Development Program and the RE Commercialisation Program
can only be conducted on a large scale if completed by the RET Supply
Development Program , while the first two programs create the demand
that is to be served by the third one.
