  • Encourage local and regional partnerships – Partnerships, including public-private ones, should be actively encouraged as they play an important role in establishing market credibility, fostering innovation and facilitating the transfer of advanced energy technologies.
  • Promote innovation through industrial clustering: Large-scale investments should be made in R&D and the development of knowledge and production centres, which will facilitate industrial clustering and a multiplier effect on production, innovation, efficiency and trade.
