New horizons in institutional and evolutionary economics


Two economists from the Free University in Amsterdam, and two researchers from the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency explain how evolutionary economics can help guide innovations and transitions in the context of energy and sustainable development. After looking in detail at the technology and the policy of fuel cells, nuclear fusion, and photo-voltaic energy, they suggest public policies to facilitate the transition to sustainable development.
