Course Aims

Innovation plays a critical role for addressing and tackling various types of energy and environmental issues. Theoretical frameworks and empirical studies are introduced to understand policy instruments for environmental protection and energy security with their impacts on promoting innovations. The effects of environmental policy on industrial competitiveness are explored with implications for the current discussions on how to achieve green growth. The role of innovation under the constraints of finite amounts of natural resources and limited capacities of environmental assimilation is critically examined. The principles of energy and environmental policies are discussed, drawing on historical developments as well as contemporary cases. Policy instruments are evaluated through empirical examination of past experiences in different countries and industrial sectors. Systemic approaches to designing and implementing policies for energy and environmental innovation are explored in the context of the accelerating rate of technological change and globalization of economic activities.
