Building a national wind turbine industry

Building a national wind turbine industry: experiences from China, India and South Korea

This paper explores the strategies used by the domestic wind power
technology companies in China, India and South Korea in order to understand
how these countries have acquired and assimilated advanced technologies.
It finds that the primary technology transfer and acquisition strategies utilised
included licensing arrangements and Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) that
resulted in the transfer of technology ownership and partnerships for the joint
development of new technology. As technology development becomes
increasingly global, firms in the emerging economies can take advantage of
their increasing access to technological know-how that was previously
developed by and for the developed world.
