- Un estudio de la EEA sobre medidas de apoyo a la energía y su impacto en la innovación en renovables.
Governments support energy production and consumption in order to meet social, economic and environmental objectives, and they have been doing so for decades. In times of economic crisis, public budgets and household incomes come under pressure. At the same time, countries need to kick‑start their economies by creating new employment opportunities in emerging industries such as the renewable sector. This report examines the support allocated to energy production and consumption in Europe and its impact on innovation in renewable energy- Un artículo que analiza si las exenciones fiscales para la I+D funcionan o no. La conclusión:
Tax incentives can induce firms to invest more in R&D, but it appears the innovativeness of an economy is unlikely to depend on their presence. Simply introducing an R&D tax incentive or making an existing scheme more generous in countries where framework conditions for innovation are lacking might be a waste of government resources. Policymakers should first focus on policies that enhance the overall entrepreneurial environment, in which R&D tax incentives can be a nice addition.- Los temas en los que está interesado ahora mismo Steven Chu.
