Transfer of technology is an important instrument for international energy cooperation as well as energy trade and investments. Besides commercial transfer of technology, there is a vast range of non-commercial transfer of technology within the framework of international cooperation agreements related, inter alia, to infrastructure projects, research, transport, etc., with consequences in different areas, such as the environmental field or concerning intellectual property rights. In this regard, the cross-border energy technology cooperation brings economic growth for the involved zone. Accordingly, this chapter makes a commentary on this legal provision to understand its raison d’être and relevance in the energy sector.
