On 17 February 2021, Professor Laura Diaz Anadon, C-EENRG director and fellow, delivered the 2021 Sussex Energy Group (SEG) Keynote Lecture on 'Technological Change in Energy and Green Industrial Policy'.

Energy technologies are experiencing a period of rapid change. This change is helping society rise to meet the climate challenge and also spurring research within a wide range of related disciplines. In addition to technological change, we now have increasing experience of climate harms and better knowledge of the co-benefits of climate action. We are also experiencing the rise of social movements calling for a low carbon future. Together, these factors have combined to create the current momentum behind industrial policies for a green recovery. But how, and to what extent, do different policies incentivise energy technology innovation and competitiveness for a just energy transition? In this talk Professor Anadon shared key insights from research addressing this question.
