TIL that there is a theory called Technological Transitions (Geels, 2002). Technological Transitions (TT) explain on how innovations occur and incorporated into society. As in science, there is nothing new, the concept of technological transition has a baseline in innovation (classic as Schumpeter 1934 Theory of Economic Development)
To understand about this transition, one must read about history, learn about wave/cycle as in Kondratiev Wave a 50-60 transition cycles.
Well I hope I can learn about this, as of now there are so many perspective on renewable energy, from innovation, transition to barrier.
