Abstract

Most of the current approaches of technology management emphasis on the need of systematic technology management in both strategic and operational perspectives. The majority of developing countries have a problem to manage technology systematically and fail to implement management techniques effectively. There is a big gap between developed and developing countries in most fields of technology and the power generation sector is among them. The goal of this research work is to develop a conceptual framework for power generation technology management for developing countries. Also to draw a systematic guide lines and clear strategy to help decision makers to optimise their decisions to save resources and less harming to climate. In this work, a systematic approach is developed to select a suitable hard technology for power generation technologies selection using the AHP software. A sensitivity analysis is carried out to show how the decision is affected with the change in criteria and sub-criteria. After this objective is achieved, some other soft technologies are identified with their limits and integrated with hard technologies for power generation. A validation of the proposed model is provided using the questionnaire technique.
