Palgrave Macmillan, 2019, 142 p.

Per Ove Eikeland and Jon Birger Skjærseth: The Politics of Low-Carbon Innovation. The EU Strategic Energy Technology PlanThe EU Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) was aimed at accelerating low-carbon innovation by raising, coordinating and concentrating Resources to certain low-carbon Technologies. At the ten year anniversary of the SET-Plan, this book examines why it was adopted and what it has achieved. Using an analytical framework to capture the 'politics of innovation', the Authors trace the history of the Plan from initiation to implementation, and then explain its Development as seen from the perspectives of the EU institutions, member-states, industry, the Research community and international technology markets. The conclusing Chapter discusses lessons and prospects for European low-carbon innovation towards 2030 and Beyond. This New work fills a void in the literature on EU climate and energy policies, and will appeal to scholars, students and practitioners in these fields.
