Description:

The purpose of this chapter is to examine the state-of-the-art of Knowledge Assets Management (KAM) in the energy industry, reviewing both the literature and the practice of KAM initiatives. Particular attention is provided to renewable energy sector and to the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). It emerges that most of the literature is focused on big companies and little attention is paid to renewable energy sector. It emerges that some organizations, especially in the oil industry, are seen as leaders in KM practice. On the other hand, SMEs operating in the renewable energy industry are not still aware of the relevance of KAM and then do not still address explicitly KAM initiatives or projects. The research revealed that small firms do indeed manage knowledge assets informally as part of their normal activities, without using of the terminology and concepts of knowledge management discipline.
