Jorrit Gosens received his PhD in Environmental Economics & Management from the Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences, for a thesis focused on the formation of China’s technological capabilities, and China’s transition from lagging to leading, in renewable energy industries. During his post-doc period, his work was similarly focused on geographical elements of innovation in renewable energy industries, aiming to understand how different countries’ innovation systems are linked, and why industries tend to relocate over time. Empirically, this work has been focused on the wind power, bio-energy, and Concentrated Solar Power sectors, and China’s changing role in global innovation and deployment in these sectors. Jorrit is a research fellow at the Centre for Climate and Energy Policy and the Energy Transition Hub. He also created and runs China Energy Portal, an online resource with crowd-sourced translations of Chinese energy statistics and policy.
