Avoiding catastrophic climate change requires a global energy transition, which opens up for the emergence of novel industries. This project focusses on the question of how a nation, in this case Sweden, can create domestic industrial renewal based on research and development of new energy technologies that have a limited home market but substantial global potential. Through case studies of marine and solar energy, we develop knowledge about the importance of key innovation processes for moving from technology demonstration to large-scale industrialisation, in order to underpin discussions on how sets of policy instruments can, and have to, work together to reach the parallel but linked policy goals of energy transition and industrial renewal.
