I am excited to announce the launch of the LINKS website. LINKS is an ERC funded project (Sep 2019 – Aug 2024) focusing on the role of the financial system to boost the low-carbon transition.

‘Shifting the trillions’ to close the climate investment gap will require to exploit investors’ interactions and dynamics as their collective dynamics shape the actual flows in low-carbon technologies and drive the direction of technical change. The evolution of such inter-connected structures will determine how the financial system could pool long-term financial assets to boost the low-carbon transition; how policy can seek to take advantages of non-linearity and tipping points in the system by influencing key actors and connections; and will determine the main winners and losers within the financial system itself.

We are now analysing financial flows and investments in three different markets: energy efficiency, solar and wind technologies.

Stay tuned for more updates!
