Business Incubators Targeting Renewable Energy Entrepreneurs

Norges Vel believes that Incubators provide numerous benefits to owners of startup businesses. Incubator staff and technical networks provides technical advice and much-needed expertise in developing adopted and sustainable technology,  business and marketing plans as well as helping to fund fledgling businesses. 

An incubator is an organization designed to accelerate the growth and success of entrepreneurial companies through an array of business support resources and services that includes physical space, capital, coaching, common services, and network connections. The purpose is to help create and grow young businesses by providing them with necessary support and financial and technical services. 

The incubator provides a platform to demonstrate new technologies and business models. There are many renewable energy technologies adapted successfully regionally and internationally. These technologies are not always available in the country of operation or in the local communities. To get access to - and experiences from - such proven technologies can provide new opportunities, and this is a natural part of our activities within renewable energy.

Demonstrating small pilot plants and transfer of knowledge and technology is already happening through both south-south and north-south cooperation and networking. If possible, technologies should be produced locally, to increase the positive effects locally. Competence building and networking are key issues to succeed in implementing renewable energy projects with local ownership. This happens in close cooperation with universities, technical institutions, companies, organizations and national authorities. 

Norges Vel is also involved in organizing local energy value chains, for example in bio-energy projects with biomass collection, energy production and heat/electricity delivery to customers. Such activities often have strong synergies with our agricultural projects.
