The Clean Technology Investment Programme encouraged firms to switch to cleaner technology while allowing them to maintain their competitiveness. The Business Dynamics of a Clean Energy Policy paper looks at whether the performance of firms that received the grants was any better than those that did not receive the funding.

This paper investigates whether receiving these grants had any impact on participating firms in terms of:

  • growth in employment
  • turnover
  • exports
  • capital investments

See the Clean Technology, Regulation and Government Intervention research paper for the impact of the grants on the adoption of cleaner technology and on emission reduction.
