Renewable energy

Renewable energy can provide a clean alternative for the production of energy in rural areas and has potential to create new sources of income for rural producers.

In the field of renewable energy IAK benefits from the extensive know-how of IAK’s advisory services in Germany. Our experts from the domestic advisory department have worked on numerous projects like feasibility studies for photovoltaics, wind power, biogas and bio diesel production. In international cooperation projects these experiences are a strong basis for the technical assistance in the use of biogas and energy plant species.

In the implementation of projects on renewable energy IAK puts a particular focus on ecological and social sustainability. The holistic utilization of renewable resources which competes with food production is a special challenge. Therefor IAK applies approaches for a sustainable land use planning and strives for the development of standards and certificates in value chains.
