FEEM-IEFE Seminar: The Policy Drivers of Photovoltaic Industry Growth in California, Germany, and Japan
This month’s FEEM-IEFE seminar gives a detailed description of the policy approaches adopted by the countries that have been most successful in setting up a photovoltaic technology industry. It examines the links between technological paths, policy measures affecting demand or supply, and industry performance, keeping an eye on existing technologies and their potentials. The main conclusion of the study is that public policies stimulate innovation, ensure patent protection and apply incentive measures or command-and-control instruments.
