Norwegian Energy Technology Innovation and Diffusion in a
Global Technology Market with International Commitments
the coming years policies to promote technology innovation and diffusion will
play a key role in reaching Norway's energy and environmental goals. Such
policies will have to take into account Norway's international commitments as
well as broader international processes. To facilitate evaluation of policy
options it is necessary to specify the international framework's influence on
Norwegian policy-making. This project has combined insights from the study of
relevant international political processes with use of a systems engineering
model. Particular attention has been given to EU policy and the implementation
of current and emerging EU-directives, and how they may affect the future
technology composition of the Norwegian energy system and management of niche
markets for new energy technologies.
The project has been coordinated by
the Institute for Energy Technology and is part
of the Research Council of Norway's
