Perspectives on selection and deployment of low-carbon technologies from Northern Jutland
What role can international sources of knowledge on low-carbon technologies play for Kenya in the development towards sustainable energy access? Ensuring that the most adequate low-carbon technologies are selected and that they are diffused and used in a way that ensures increased electrification rates and better living conditions for the population (ultimate outcome) is a major challenge. What policies and incentives need to be in place? What types of capacity building are most urgently needed? And can experience from other countries such as e.g. Denmark help Kenya develop more effective policies and better outcomes in the field?
In June 2017 the IREK research team went on a study tour in Northern Jutland to visit the Port of Aalborg, Nordic Folkecenter for Renewable Energy, The National Test Center for Large Wind Turbines in Østerild and Access2innovation – all examples of institutions and organisations working with different aspects of and perspectives on selection and diffusion of low-carbon technologies.
