"Disruptive innovation and the role of policy mixes: the case of e-mobility in three countries"


This seminar addresses the role of policy mixes in disruptive innovation. It discusses a regime evolution framework that elaborates Christensen’s typology of disruptive and sustaining innovation, rooted in industrial analysis, to include changes in the institutional context of production and use, especially consumer perspectives and government regulation. Subsequently we examine how and to what to extent electric propulsion is disrupting the ICE-regime in car mobility in three countries:  Norway, The Netherlands and Denmark. Based on stakeholder interviews, the policies affecting e-mobility in each country are described.  Through a comparison of the policy mixes (highlighting interaction effects) we explain the relative FBEV sales levels, and the associated disruption pathway in each of the three countries. Policy implications for transition to e-mobility are discussed.
