New Publication: Geography and the speed of green technology diffusion.

In a new paper entitled ‘Geography and the speed of green technology diffusion’ published in the journal Industry and Innovation, Sebastian Losacker and Ingo Liefner from the Institute of Economic and Cultural Geography, together with Jens Horbach from Augsburg University of Applied Sciences, analyze how fast green technologies diffuse. The paper investigates the speed of green technology diffusion in China using a unique data set, which lists geocoded patent licence agreements for green technologies from 2000–2019. The authors find that licensing of inventions within a region is 8% faster than licensing between regions. Moreover, the more a region specializes in green technologies, the faster a patent is licensed within the region.
