Modelling innovation and the macroeconomics of low-carbon transitions: theory, perspectives and practical use

ABSTRACT Energy and climate policies may have significant economy-wide impacts, which are regularly assessed based on quantitative energy-environment-economy models. These tend to vary in their

Modelling complex systems of heterogeneous agents to better design sustainability transitions policy

This article proposes a fundamental methodological shift in the modelling of policy interventions for sustainability transitions in order to account for complexity (e.g. self-reinforcing mechanisms,

Systems Innovation, Inertia and Pliability: A mathematical exploration with implications for climate change abatement

This paper develops a stylised mathematical interpretation of innovation and inertia in economic systems, characteristics which feature in economics literature traceable back at least to Schumpeter

Energy efficiency decision-making in non-energy intensive industries: content and social network analysis

Paper aims: The present study aims to identify the limitations of the artifacts used in the decision-making process in the adoption of energy efficiency measures in productive systems, using

Accelerating Technology Adoption: A Benchmarking Study of Organisational Innovation Adoption Culture in Upstream Oil and Gas

Working towards a net zero future requires change and adaptation from us all. Innovation offers many potential solutions on how to successfully make that change within the oil and gas industry.



Diffusion of Green Technology: A Survey

This paper surveys the existing literature on diffusion of environmentally beneficial technology. Overall, it confirms many of the lessons of the larger literature on technology diffusion: diffusion

The Role of Behavioural Economics in Energy and Climate Policy

This article explores how behavioural economics can be applied to energy and climate policy. We present an overview of main concepts of behavioural economics and discuss how they differ from the

An evolutionary model of energy transitions with interactive innovation-selection dynamics

We develop a stylized application of a new evolutionary model to study an energy transition in electricity production. The framework describes a population of boundedly rational electricity producers

Do energy audits help reduce barriers to energy efficiency? An empirical analysis for Germany

A vast body of literature suggests that there is a variety of obstacles to increasing the efficiency in the use of energy through private and public organisations or individual households. Barriers
