New paper proposes framework to aid policy design for sustainability transitions

A new journal article by researchers at the Centre on Innovation and Energy Demand (CIED) proposes a new framework exploring the way policies affect sustainability transitions and how the changes they stimulate can generate feedback influencing subsequent policies. The paper, written by CIED Doctoral Student Duncan Edmondson, Dr Florian Kern and Dr Karoline Rogge, argues that this framework can help policy makers in designing a mix of policies aiding the transition to a low carbon economy.

The researchers use the case of the UK Zero Carbon Homes target to help highlight the way a mix of policies can interact with sustainable innovation, which may then influence future policy decisions.
