The overall purpose of this paper is to briefly outlay and analyze the fundamentals of technological change in the renewable energy sector. Considering the threat of severe consequences of global warming, and policymakers’ desire to focus technological change in renewable energy as one of the solutions, the contribution of this paper lays in its attempt to promote understanding of the technological change process, i.e., the drivers behind it and the possible development patterns for different countries. Such knowledge should enable policy makers to make more efficient decisions.
