The 3 stages of a country embracing renewable energy

Harvard Business Review
Abstract:
Subject(s): Economics, politics and business environment

The world is undergoing a transformation in how it gets its power. In Germany, we have a word for it: Energiewende. It means energy turning point. (We use the same word Wende to describe the fall of the Berlin Wall and all the dramatic changes that came with it.) In this transformation, we are witnessing the decarbonization of power consumption, thanks to the large-scale deployment of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. Earlier this year, the European Union announced that its climate and renewable energy targets—a 20% cut in greenhouse gas emissions, 20% of EU energy from renewable sources, and a 20% improvement in energy efficiency—are actually on track to realization by the year 2020.

Innovation performance of the US American and European electricity supply industry

Energy Policy 86: 351–359
Abstract:
Subject(s): Economics, politics and business environment
Keyword(s): Innovation, research, collaboration, performance, electricity, energy

Using a production function approach based on Cobb–Douglas, this analysis relates R&D efforts of 32 electric utilities on both sides of the Atlantic to their performance in terms of labour productivity. We find that higher R&D levels generally have a positive impact on revenues. However, only in the sub-sample of 16 electricity suppliers in Europe this effect is significant. Knowledge spill-over effects can be estimated for the US American sub-sample, since US utilities have bundled their R&D efforts in a centralized research institution and have to report that data. Our analysis reveals, though, that collaborative research efforts do not lead to positive spill-overs at the assumption of a time delay of one year.

The decentralized energy revolution in Germany

Power & Energy Solutions 27(September): 85–88
Abstract:
Subject(s): Economics, politics and business environment, Health and environment, Strategy and general management, Technology, R&D management
Keyword(s): Decentralized, Energy, Germany, Energiewende
JEL Code(s): O31, Q420, Q480

Germany has embarked on a journey to fundamentally transform its energy supply system: the energy turnaround, or “Energiewende” as it is known. But the country that kick-started the PV movement around a decade ago has since been superseded by even more ambitious nations. So can Germany become a game-changer once more?
