direct knowledge exchange and thus capacity building between network partners based on the network structure of the three thematic blocks;
direct contacts between network partners and associated partners to ensure involvement of relevant stakeholders and to integrate new experiences and insights into the knowledge pool of the network;
provision of an Internet-based communication and information exchange platform to facilitate a wide dissemination of the accumulated knowledge on Green IPPs; this platform includes a project database; a forum for all stakeholders to present their relevant activities; discussion forums covering different thematic aspects; and a download section containing research reports, further relevant publications and network documents;
publication of a quarterly newsletter to communicate network activities and to support the dissemination of relevant information and network results;
organisation of workshops in Europe and Southeast Asia with specific focus on technical (e.g., innovative project financing schemes, future technological potentials), regional (e.g., existing technical and economic potentials of renewable energy sources, market potential of Green IPPs in Southeast Asia) or policy issues (e.g., policy instruments supporting project development and implementation). These workshops will be open to all interested parties;
presentation of new insights, experiences and concepts developed within the framework on leading conferences and via papers in recognised scientific journals to further promote research activities on these topics;
intense discussion of all insights related to policy design with national and international policy makers. This will take place on special workshop segments dedicated to policy issues as well as in a bilateral way between the different network partners and their national policy representatives.
