The central objective of this Special Issue is to examine whether, how and why low-carbon innovation paths differ between the leading countries in Europe and the rising powers in Asia. . It is particularly concerned with the role of public policy in shaping these innovation paths. The contributors, though, avoid mono-causal explanations and explore the complex and evolving inter-relationships between public policy and other determinants such as national context and corporate strategies.
