These actors are surrounded by regulating and stimulating institutional and policy actors, and by a research community as diverse in their focus and interest as the other different elements of this large technological system. Also, many of the concrete impulses for changes on the national level stem from international sources and the European Commission, a prominent example being the EU ETS or CCS. All in all, there are multiple forms of potential linkages and networks and their innovation impacts; assessments of the respective sub-networks or settings of actors will be presented in the innovation cases that follow.
