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.



The seminar is designed to offer insights into methods and initiatives on renewable energy in Small Developing Island States, whic  try to address their  urgent  need for more sustainable energy production and consumption, and to present alternative approaches  of  how  to  deal  with  energy problems.

Target Group

This seminar is designed for representatives from organisations working in the fields of energy, environment and international cooperation, universities, businesses and delegates fromdevelopment  agencies  focusing  on renewable energy.
