Abstract

We cross fertilise scholarship on industrial policy (IP) and renewable energy (RE) innovation and submit that RE serves as a General Purpose Technology that contains more specific RE technologies (RETs). We develop five Hypotheses and provide econometric evidence for the impact of demand-pull, technology-push and systemic IP instruments on different RETs. We test for the role of country experience, for EU North-South regional variations, and for the quality of RE innovations. We employ a large data set for thirty-four OECD countries and find support for our theory-derived hypotheses.
