Strategic Deployment and Learning-by-doing

Deploying new energy technologies often requires suitable support mechanisms. In our work, we evaluate existing and new mechanisms with a view to understanding their operation and the extent to which experience is transferable to other countries.

Exploring the effects of learning on future technology costs is also an important area and has the potential to greatly contribute to policy analysis.

Topics under this theme include:

  • Support mechanisms for commercial technology deployment
  • International technology cooperation
  • Theory and application of learning rates to energy technologies
