Economics of energy innovation policy
Recognizing that more research and development (R&D) spending alone does not necessarily lead to successful innovation outcomes, this project explores how resources can be spent wisely in order to induce and accelerate clean energy innovation. We are using large databases of R&D subsidies and company performance measures to examine how different innovation policy designs impact innovation outcomes. The project is part of the Oxford Martin Programme on Integrating Renewable Energy.
