Special Virtual Issue on Low Carbon Innovation Paths in Europe and Asia

The current technological shift from high to low carbon development coincides with a geographical shift: the rapid expansion of green production and innovation capacity in China and India. This constellation gives rise to the question: to what extent, how and why do the innovation paths in Europe and in Asia differ?  The articles in this Special Issue focus on this question and present the findings of new comparative research on renewable energy and electromobility. 

The articles are particularly concerned with the role of public policy in shaping the innovation paths. The contributors, though, avoid mono-causal explanations and explore the complex and evolving inter-relationships between public policy and other determinants such as national context and corporate strategies. 

All articles in this Special Issue are free to read until 5 March 2017.
