The Canary Islands Institute of Technology (ITC)Partner
Department carrying out activities: Renewable Energies
The Canary Islands Institute of Technology (ITC) is attached to the Regional Ministry of Economy, Industry, Trade and Innovation of the Canary Islands Government. The main objectives of ITC’s Renewable Energy Department are to encourage the industrial development of the Canary Islands in the fields of renewable energies, to promote the implementation of renewable energy systems in the Canary Islands, and to contribute to transfer clean energy technologies to neighboring less developed countries of the Western African Coast.
RESEARCHERS CARRYING OUT ACTIVITIES:
