Performances de la recherche et de l’innovation du CDER en 2015

The Renewable Energy Development Center carry on its success in matter of scientific research and technological development. However, the year 2015 has been characterized with the partnership with the socio-economic sector.

The collaboration with institutions working in renewable energy field has clearly improved, especially with the launching of the National Programme for Renewable Energy Development. For instance, CDER has been approached for a theorical and practical training of auditors of large PV power plants, wind power plants and cogeneration for the Commission of Regulation of Electricity and Gas (CREG). CDER led, for the account of Shariket Kahraba wa Taket Moutadjadida (SKTM), a Sonelgaz brand, performance and reliability assessment of two demonstration projects ; PV 1.1 megawatt multi-technologies and a 10 megawatt wind turbine in Adrar. It has also conducted solar potential assessment of solar farms put into service by SKTM.

With a massive recruiting of researchers and support research staff in 2015, CDER understands today 888 employees, 421 of which are permanent researchers, what makes CDER one of the biggest research center in Algeria, in North Africa and in Arab countries.

Concerning scientific production, the preliminary report as at December 15th, 2015 recorded more than 625 scientific contributions between international publications, international communications and patents filed.

Careful to enhance the knowledge of its researchers, CDER offered, during this year, 57 short period internships and 16 long period internships in world-renowned research facilities.

Besides, 2015 was rich in scientific activities and animations either conferences or topic seminars or taking part in fairs and scientific events. Number of partnership agreements was signed with universities and Algerian and foreighn research institutions as well as public and private local companies. CDER is represented in the highest UN bodies for climate change. Indeed, the Director of CDER is elected as the Vice-President of the Working Group for Scientific Elements of the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC).

The CDER’s researchers continue to conduct research works of excellence in order to develop and master technologies that allow the exploitation of the considerable and inexhaustible renewable potential that owns our country ; an exceptional solar potential and a notable wind and geothermal potential.

CDER strengthens its position, at both regional and local level, as a research center of excellence in renewable energy. We are convinced that these efforts will for sure ensure and foster the energy transition within sustainable development and the new wold order on climate change.
