Policies for shaping consumption patterns on energy efficiency

Innovations for sustainability: policy opportunities focused on shaping consumption patterns on energy efficiency

1st Valencian Workshop on Efficiency and Productivity

Valencia 7 – 8 October 2010

This paper was based in one essay from my Msc in SPRU. It is my first attempt to explore the process of diffusion of environmental innovations by focusing in a portfolio of environmental policies. I have applied the concept of eco-innovation to improve the understanding the different ways to influence determinants of consumption pattern but empirically I applied the case of huge US policy portfolio. It was a revealing exercise on policy studies at early stages of my Dphil project.
