Without a clear understanding of technological options available from different sectors, managing the transition to a global low carbon economy will be extremely difficult. Furthermore, predicting when/how these technological options become available is particularly challenging, as most energy technologies are part of complex global technology systems and are often concieved via interaction of different scientific fields—for example, solar photovoltaic (PV) innovations have arisen from developments in consumer and industrial electronics, whilst advances in concentrated solar power (CSP) derive from aerospace and satellite technologies.
