East Asia’s Clean Energy Shift: Enablers, Obstacles, Outcomes, Lessons

We look at the key enablers, obstacles and drivers of East Asia’s transition to a low carbon economy. The project will develop and analyse four new longitudinal case studies of clean energy industry creation in two of Australia's top Asian trading partners. 

Our findings will advance scholarly and policy debates and strategies about the role of the state in high-tech industry creation and clean energy transitions. They will also benefit Australian exporters seeking new market openings.

The investigatory team is drawn from the disciplines of political science, international political economy strategic management. It includes experts in Chinese and Korean language and culture as well as Australia.
