Capitalisation of environmental technologies in companies: economic schemes in a business perspective
Drawing from empirical cases of environmental sound technologies (ESTs) and economic theory, this paper discusses how such technologies can be brought into the marketplace in new and creative ways through creative public sector financial support and capitalisation. An example of capitalisation from the public sector in Denmark demonstrates new technologies being diffused through a successful program in existence for over 18 years. This approach might be useful in the commercialisation of environmental and energy technologies.
