Content

  • Overview of knowledge-sharing programme

  • Aims

  • Approaches

  • Needs

  • First steps for pilot study: China

  • Planned activities

  • Audience

  • Expected outcomes

  • Challenges


1 aim

1. Aim

  • Make information available to promote the access to and scaling-up of low carbon technologies

  • Low carbon technologies: focus mainly on renewable energy

  • Allow practitioners and researchers to share their experience and knowledge of community-scale low carbon energy


2 knowledge sharing programme

2. Knowledge-sharing programme

  • Online forum for community level knowledge sharing

  • Directory of downloadable resources including:

    • Manuals

    • Resource assessment tools

    • Best practice guidance

    • Research

  • Programme of meetings and seminars

  • Material and information packs to promote learning, also for those without access to internet


3 need

3. Need

  • There is a gap in information provision: knowledge about low carbon energy and low carbon development is still very limited at the community-level

  • Number of organisations working on low carbon energy systems and low carbon development is growing

  • Research into delivery models is increasing

  • But no central platform to collect and disseminate knowledge and growing experience at the community-level


4 how will it work

4. How will it work?

  • Create a network of organisations and individuals working on / interested in community-scale renewable energy systems

  • Develop an on-line database and resource centre providing information for free

  • Newsletters and briefing notes

  • Action-oriented research programme to populate the database and address problems identified by the network

  • Pilot study to test and refine the concept


5 first steps for pilot study china

5. First steps for pilot study: China

  • Piloting knowledge-sharing programme: joint initiative IDS & Koru

  • Early stage: suggestions / cooperation

  • No knowledge-sharing networks on low carbon exist in China

  • Perceived need for it at the Chinese level

  • Chinese government has ambitious national plans to promote low carbon energy and low carbon

    development, high reliance on coal


6 planned activities

6. Planned activities

  • Partners in China: Tsinghua University

  • Seed funder: IDS

  • Seed funding will cover initial set-up costs for pilot

  • Need for other partners and co-funders to fully conduct pilot

  • 3 long-term components:

  • Knowledge-sharing platform

  • Face-to-face meetings and seminars

  • Research programme


6 planned activities pilot knowledge sharing platform

6. Planned activities: pilot knowledge-sharing platform

  • Time frame: November 2009 – June 2010

  • Aim is to share knowledge on community-scale low carbon energy and low carbon development in China

  • Web 2.0 platform with forums and social networking

  • Provision of tool kits and case studies for low carbon energy and low carbon development free of charge

  • Translations and monitoring by Chinese colleagues


7 audience

7. Audience

  • Pilot platform aims to reach people that have access to internet.

  • Can be people in rural and urban communities (practitioners, researchers)

  • Role of businesses, industries and policy-makers to be discussed

  • Platform can be used as a way of informing and influencing

  • Possibility to embed platform in existing websites would be of great advantage


8 expected outcomes

8. Expected outcomes

  • Dissemination of information on a) community-scale low carbon energy systems in China and b) strategies and examples of how to achieve low carbon development.

  • Exchange of experiences between participants.

  • Contributes to improved understanding of low carbon energy and development and South-South / North-South cooperation.


9 challenges

9. Challenges

  • Overcome the language barrier between English and Chinese – to create a platform used by Chinese.

  • To create an interactive platform that involves users to upload own research and discuss existing research and tools.

  • To involve various stakeholders, for example researchers, practitioners, policy makers, industrial stakeholders and NGOs.

  • Develop this pilot in cooperation with already existing platforms and networks.
