Technological change has become a major focus in environmental policy as well as in energy and climate policy. Indeed, there is a growing body of knowledge about how and in which direction technological change might have an impact on environmental resource constraints and how environmental policy might have an impact on this direction. In this article we introduce the contributions to this special issue showing how they add to recent developments in the field of economics of technological change and sustainability. We also discuss potential avenues for future research.
