This book explores how science and the characteristics of technology determine the emergence of new technologies, focusing more on the improvements for cost and performance in some technologies. It explains how improvements in the cost and performance of specific industries emerge, and why they emerge more for some technologies than for others. The chapter asserts that an understanding of why some technologies have more potential for improvements than others is necessary for the implementation of government policies and the creation of strategies for firms' research and development for clean energy or any other technology in general.

Keywords:   science, technology, cost, performance, government, firms, clean energy
