Technology Transfer of Wind Energy Production
This is a study to examine the prospect of importing and then indigenization of technology related to wind energy production. This study will analyze the phenomenal success of India and China in importing the technology of manufacturing wind turbines from Denmark and Germany. Not only the share of wind produced energy in overall energy mix is improving in India and China but also these countries have gained a competitive edge in manufacturing the wind turbine technology to meet the needs of expanding local markets and also a source of foreign exchange in the form of technology export. The unit cost of power produced by wind energy in India and China has dramatically dropped since production of locally-manufactured turbines.
While there are many potential benefits to local wind manufacturing, there are also significant barriers to entry into an industry containing companies that have been manufacturing wind turbines for more than 20 years. In developing countries, limited indigenous technical capacity and quality control makes entry even more difficult. International technology transfers can be a solution, although leading companies in this industry are unlikely to license proprietary information to companies that could become competitors. This could be even riskier for technology... [continues]
