Energy-related goods account for more than ten percent of international trade, yet policy makers, academics, and the business community perceive barriers to the global diffusion of these emerging technologies. Using case studies from China’s solar photovoltaic, gas turbine, advanced battery, and coal gasification industries to examine both barriers and incentives in clean energy technology transfer, Kelly Sims Gallagher demonstrates that clean energy technologies already cross borders through foreign direct investment, licensing, joint R& D and other channels. She finds that the barriers are not as daunting as many assume, IP infringement is not as widespread as business leaders fear, and that while financing does present an obstacle, the biggest single barrier is a lack of policy incentives.
