The Deployment of New Energy Technologies and the Need for Local Learning

Event Details

Thursday, October 1, 2020
4:15-5:15 p.m.
The transition to a low carbon society will require a good understanding of the nature of technological change and the potential of designing policy measures accelerating processes of technical change. I will focus on the process of deployment of new energy technology, what the literature can tell us about the need for local learning when adopting new technologies, the potential of cost reduction in relation to local learning, and how to design policy instruments to support local learning.
