Expanding markets for clean and efficient technologies will increase energy security and help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But many promising technologies are still too expensive or face other obstacles to commercial deployment. Realising the potential for a cleaner and more secure energy system requires governments to consider deployment policies to create markets for the new technologies.

This book explores the design of technology deployment programmes and the sources of their success. Based on 22 case studies from IEA countries, the analysis is framed within three perspectives. The first focuses on market learning processes, the second on an economic analysis of market barriers, and the third on market actors and practical techniques to transform energy markets. These three perspectives together provide a framework for understanding and designing successful technology deployment programmes.

The CD-ROM attached to the book contains the three papers presented at the IEA Workshop Technologies Require markets: Best practices and Lessons Learned in Energy Technology Deployment, the 22 case studies on which the book is based, and their summaries.
