Innovation is core to transforming the electricity system towards a sustainable path. In its nature, innovation can be technological, but also institutional, policy-related, behavioral or organizational, to mention just some possible perspectives — and it usually touches upon all of these dimensions at once. Hence innovation is a complex and systemic phenomenon whose characteristics and implications reach far beyond the idea of technological novelties. These are the presumptions from which we started investigating the design and the dynamics of innovation in electricity systems.
