Pilot and Demonstration Plants for Energy Transitions
Research Project , 2020 –

Pilot and Demonstration Plants PDPs represent the bridge between research and development on one hand as well as up-scaling and commercialization on the other hand. PDPs address not only technical challenges, but also reduce the organizational-, market-, and institutional risks and uncertainties that key stakeholders face in developing these new technologies. In this research project, public policy challenges and implications for the construction and use of PDPs will be studied to inform policy-making on the role and
interplay between instruments on various levels of government. Accordingly, the study contributes with new insights into the challenges of public policy in a PDP context and shows
how the market conditions from a policy perspective can be improved and the transition to a bio-economy be speeded up.
