Innovation Dynamics and Policy in the Energy Sector: Building Global Energy Markets, Institutions, Public Policy, Technology and Culture on the Texan Innovation Example by Dr. Holloway is available for pre-order at https://www.elsevier.com/books/innovation-dynamics-and-policy-in-the-energy-sector/holloway/978-0-12-823813-4?aaref=
Description: Innovation Dynamics and Policy in the Energy Sector: Building Global Energy Markets, Institutions, Public Policy, Technology and Culture on the Texan Innovation Example reviews the dynamics of the Texas energy sector, including discussions on technological change, competitive markets, astute public policy, collaborative institutions, a culture that invites change and risk-taking, and natural resource abundance. The book documents numerous case studies driven by innovation in policy, markets, technology and institutions, including Spindletop, East Texas Field, Disciplined Rule of Capture, Permian Basin, Natural Gas Flaring, The Arab Oil Embargo, Electric Sector Deregulation, and more.
The book argues that sustainable global innovation that addresses the twin challenges of climate change and energy transition must be driven by the promotion of competition and risk-taking which continually promotes the development of ideas, a process jointly funded by both public and private sectors.
