  • About this blog

    This blog’s primary focus will be on energy and this will be, more or less, a learning blog. The blog will offer some of my own views, as well as the views of some of the participants at EMIC.

As my knowledge of these issues expand, I would also like to explore issues that relate more broadly to innovation and the role of public financing in this sector.
