Thanks to ALTERENERGY Strategic Project, tutoring service for Apulian SMEs

The Fiera del Levante in Bari is where the tutoring service of a number of enterprises operating in the regional economic system in the fields of energy saving and renewable energy starts. Engaged by the Mediterranean Department of the Puglia Region, lead partner of the ALTERENERGY Strategic Project, the Apulian SMEs are the focus of "one-to-one" discussions through individual meetings with INFORMEST Consulting Srl experts to investigate which financial tools are available, how to enter the markets and target geographic areas with the highest potential.

Within a few months, therefore, the action of business and investment support provided by the Strategic Project under the IPA Adriatic Cross-border Cooperation Programme 2007-2013, will lead to the identification of an internationalization process of the Apulian enterprises engaged in the RES and RUE sectors.

Analysis of the application fields of products/services offered, foreign development goals, needs and resources: then from here the development of a customized internationalization vision for each SME, with information on the most appropriate target foreign markets and support financial tools. The expected result, therefore, is first a customized framing in the phase of setting up the foreign business development strategy.

The two days of work at the Fiera del Levante in Bari are at the edge of a wide operation carried out by the ALTERENERGY partnership around the Adriatic basin. At the beginning an International Convention organized in Albania with the involvement of organizations representing businesses; then, training modules for enterprises, workshops and focus sessions throughout the whole Adriatic area; participation in the RENEXPO Western Balkans Fair in Belgrade; bilateral joint business discussions between enterprises and investors during the second BtoB meeting, the first in Serbia and the second in Puglia Region; study visits at Apulian entrepreneurial vanguard locations: after all these support steps to business and investment, there is already a talk about the start-up for an innovative supply chain of small and medium-sized enterprises operating in the energy field, for which a joint framework of the market scenario regarding reference contexts at the partner countries level has successfully been achieved: Italy, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia. In the internationalization process, the support of intermediary organizations of the Adriatic area as the chambers of commerce, productive districts and associations has been essential. Puglia Region, in particular: the Chamber of Commerce of Bari and the Department of International Affairs of Puglia Region.

The profiles of all companies involved in the ALTERENERGY partnership are collected in the "ALTERENERGY Small and Medium Enterprises Catalogue", available online on the www.alter-energy.eu website where you can find, among other things, a section devoted to "Business opportunities for SMES", with information on investment opportunities and financing in the 8 partner countries of the project.
