Divergence and convergence: technology-relatedness evolution in solar energy industry

  title={Divergence and convergence: technology-relatedness evolution in solar energy industry},
  author={Chunjuan Luan and Zeyuan Liu and Xianwen Wang},
Exploring and measuring technology-relatedness and its collateral technology divergence and convergence, would have far-reaching theoretical significance and academic value on the chain mode of technology development, and also on the mastery of the laws for technology evolution and progress. Taking the patentometric analysis of solar energy technology worldwide as a case, employing the methodology of technology co-classification analysis, choosing two indicators, namely, mean technology co… CONTINUE READING
