Description: Production targets for energy technologies can be set to force technologies through a learning curve.
Is implemented in: Energy supply

Associated policy response component

Component: Air pollution and energy policies
Page: Air pollution and energy policies/Policy issues

Effects of this policy intervention on components

Component: Energy conversion
Effect : Production targets force a conversion technology to convert energy, even though this is not economically attractive. If the learning rate of that technology depends on the amount of converted energy, the learning rate will increase.
