Jessie Knapstein speaks at UNSW SPREE


Energy technology learning curves are a foundational component of climate and energy models throughout the world. Unfortunately, due to a number of factors including different methods of producing the learning curves, the learning rates derived from these models differ drastically. This presentation outlines the various learning curves being used today, as well as recommendations for how to more accurately predict the performance of energy technologies with specific information for how policy measures factor into the learning curve.
