Description: 


Meeting climate change goals requires significant efforts to diffuse existing technologies and to develop and deploy new ones. Public and private investment need to be ramped up by a combination of “technology-push” and “market-pull” policies. Diffusing low carbon technology requires much more than shipping ready-to-use equipment to developing countries; it requires building absorptive capacity and enhancing the ability of the public and private sectors to identify, adopt, adapt, improve, and employ the most appropriate technologies. In this webinar, Dr. Nathan Hultman, Director of Environmental Policy program at the University of Maryland School of Public Policy, and Fellow at the Brookings Institution, explains the importance of innovation in the energy sector and how innovation policies can support a transition towards a low carbon economy.
