Production targets for energy technologies

From IMAGE

Jump to: navigation, search
Description: Production targets for energy technologies can be set to force technologies through a learning curve.
Is implemented in: Energy supply


Associated policy response component

Component: Air pollution and energy policies
Page: Air pollution and energy policies/Policy issues

Effects of this policy intervention on components

Component: Energy conversion

Effect : Production targets force a conversion technology to convert energy, even though this is not economically attractive. If the learning rate of that technology depends on the amount of converted energy, the learning rate will increase.
