About this book

This study offers a unique evolutionary economics perspective on energy and innovation policies in the wider context of the transition to sustainable development.

'In distinguishing their analysis from neo-classical economics and its focus on representative agents, the authors of this book make a strong case for the role of diversity in explaining energy and environment-related technological innovation. By presenting their case with elegance and insight they also make a strong case for a diversity of approaches within environmental economics itself. While many economists could disagree with some of the conclusions drawn, after reading this volume, most would agree that evolutionary economics" has much to bring to the economic analysis of environmental policy.' - Nick Johnstone, OECD Environment Directorate, France"
