DIREKT- Small Developing Island Renewable Energy Knowledge and Technology Transfer Network
Welcome to DIREKT

Green wayThe Small Developing Island Renewable Energy Knowledge and Technology Transfer Network (DIREKT) is a cooperation scheme involving universities from Germany, Fiji, Mauritius, Barbados and Trinidad & Tobago with the aim of strengthening the science and technology capacity in the field of renewable energy of a sample of ACP (Africa, Caribbean, Pacific) small island developing states, by means of technology transfer, information exchange and networking. Developing countries are especially vulnerable to problems associated with climate change and much can be gained by raising their capacity in the field of renewable energy, which is a key area.

The project is funded by the ACP Science and Technology Programme, an EU programme for cooperation between the European Union and the ACP region (Africa, Caribbean, Pacific).

International Seminar on “Sustainable Energy for All – Ideas, Approaches and Practical Solutions with a focus on Small Island Developing States”

27 September 2012, Hamburg, Germany

International Seminar on “Sustainable Energy for All – Ideas, Approaches and Practical Solutions with a focus on Small Island Developing States”Modern  life  as  we  know  it  today  is highly dependent on energy. Most of our daily activities need – some to a greater,  some  to  a  lesser  extent  – energy. As a result, sectors such as industry,  education,  health  etc.  are influenced by the supply of energy. An adequate  supply  of  energy  is  therefore important to satisfy basic needs: for  economic  development,  the  stability of a country and the protection of the environment. This is especially so in Small Island Developing States (SIDS) which have limited energy supplies and need to import most of the energy they need.

This  international  seminar  is  organised  as  part  of  the project  “Small Developing Island Renewable Energy Knowledge and Technology Transfer Network”  (DIREKT).  DIREKT is a cooperation  scheme  involving  universities  from  Germany,  Mauritius,  Fiji, Barbados and Trinidad  &  Tobago with the aim of  strengthening their science  and  technology capacity.

In  particular,  the overall aim of the DIREKT project is to strengthen the science and technology capacity  in the field of renewable energy among the  participant  countries,  and  contribute  to  the  transfer  of  research results on renewable energy by setting-up  Technology Transfer Centres in the partner organisations. The project is funded by the ACP Science and Technology Programme, an EU programme for cooperation between the European Union and the ACP region.
