"Compulsive Policy-making—The Evolution of the German Feed-in Tariff System for Solar Photovoltaic Power"

Journal Article, Research Policy

By Joern Hoppmann, Former Associate, Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group, April–August 2013; Former Research Fellow, Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group, September 2012–March 2013, Joern Huenteler, Research Fellow, Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group and Bastien Girod
