How can governments support eco-innovation when technological options proliferate? How and why policies to support Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) or Combined Heat and Power (CHP) in Canada, France and Germany differ?
This report discusses policies to support eco-innovation in a variety of national contexts and factors such as market structures and dynamics. This work builds on a review of policies to support eco-innovation in OECD countries. It builds on studies of selected eco-innovations: CCS, CHP and fuel cell, electric cars, biopackaging, solar tiles; it highlights different patterns of development across countries. It presents selected public-private partnerships to support eco-innovation (Sustainable Development Technology Canada in Canada, the Carbon Trust in the UK). It also builds on international consultation, which culminated in the Global Forum on Environment focused on eco-innovation (Paris, November 2009; see www.oecd.org/environment/innovation/globalforum for proceedings, related publications and presentations). Better Policies to Support Eco-innovation supplements other streams of work, typically on the effects of public environmental policy on technological innovation (visit www.oecd.org/environment/innovation) and on green growth (visit www.oecd.org/greengrowth). It benefitted from the generous support of the European Commission.
