23 - A Comparative Analysis of Annual Market Investments in Energy Supply and End-Use Technologies

from Part VI - Resources in the Energy Technology Innovation System

Further Reading

Erhardht-Martinez and Laitner (2008) provide one of the few available syntheses of end-use investments although using a different methodology and for the United States only. Nakicenovic and Rogner’s (1996) early work establishes the conventional supply emphasis of energy investment analysis.
