About this book

Technological learning is a key driver behind the improvement of energy technologies and subsequent reduction of production costs. Understanding how and why production costs for energy technologies decline, and whether they will continue to do so in the future, is of crucial importance for policy makers, industrial stakeholders and scientists alike.

This therefore a comprehensive review of technological development and cost reductions for renewable energy, clean fossil fuel and energy-efficient demand-side technologies.

Media reviews
`This expert analysis provides an important contribution to understanding the technicalities of energy technology cost dynamics. Given the urgent need for delivery of low-cost renewable energy technologies in particular, it is vital to understand how to accelerate this process of technological learning.' - Miguel Mendonca, World Future Council, Germany `"Experience curves" are an important instrument for policy markers. This book has a thorough discussion of such "curves" for a large number of energy technologies and will therefore be very useful around the world.' - Jose Goldemberg, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil
