The Project in Brief

The overarching objective of this project is to investigate how society can steer financing towards cleantech investments. The project pursues two main research lines.

Measures and Impact of Policy Uncertainty

We want to understand how uncertainty about the policy environment impacts cleantech investment. We will build novel indicators of climate and environmental policy uncertainty and conduct economic analysis of how these indicators affect cleantech investments.

Effectiveness of Financing Instruments

We want to understand how new tools and financing models (e.g., crowdfunding) can help attracting new investors into cleantech. This part of the project will present studies evaluating potential remedy to alleviate the financial constraints faced by young cleantech firms.
