Faster return on investment by establishing a local wind power industry

With over 25 years industry experience of its employees, Corporate Energies advises local and state governments in concept developing with local content strategies, in the choice of pilot projects, technology transfer solutions for the establishment of national manufacturing capacities and component production in emerging markets. This includes all related technical and financial services and the required training of human resources.

Establishing a local wind power industry means strong benefits for the domestic economy by generating local added value. The incubation of an high-value industry and establishment of an efficient R&D product, lead to an increase of the national human-capital by job creations in the academic activities and in education on the job. Moreover there can be determined positive effects such as a permanent contribution to the gross domestic product (GDP), a positive trade balance and additional tax revenues for the region. In addition, meeting local content requirements together with lowering transport costs generate a decisive competitive advantage towards an import of wind turbines.

Together with turbine manufacturers the Industry Development team of Corporate Energies has evolved licensee partnerships, that provide exclusivity rights to manufacture a full-fledged and sophisticated wind turbine in order to the specific demands of the home market. With the implementation of a four-year-strategy to develop applicable manufacturing capacities, there is a potential to produce up to 50 - 200 MW per year locally with a faster return on investment, compared to a full import of wind turbines, plus an export opportunity of wind turbines to nearby markets.
