Regions that produce and export fossil fuels experience strong carbon lock-in. Yet, successful fossil fuel sectors also equip a region with skills and resources that could promote the development of certain low-carbon technologies. This paper considers potential complementarities between the oil and gas sector and low-carbon geothermal energy technologies in Alberta, Canada. We find that resources from oil and gas could enable the development of geothermal technologies because of similarities… Expand
