Potenziale für Cleantech in der Schweizer Industrie



In dieser Studie untersuchen wir das «Potenzial von Cleantech-Produkten» für die Schweiz im internationalen Vergleich. Die Studie ist in zwei Teile gegliedert. Im ersten, weit - gehend deskriptiven Teil wird anhand von Patentdaten analysiert, wie die Schweiz im Cleantech- Bereich im internationalen Vergleich abschneidet. Die verwendeten Indikatoren deuten auf eine eher unterdurchschnittliche Performance hin. Im zweiten Teil wird mit Hilfe eines ökonometrischen Modells untersucht, welche Faktoren die Spezialisierung einer Branche bzw. eines Landes auf Cleantech bestimmen. Dabei wird besonderes Gewicht gelegt auf den Einfluss der Politik («politisch induzierte Innovationen»). In Übereinstimmung mit bisherigen empirischen Studien finden wir eine positive Korrelation zwischen der Höhe der Kyoto-Verpflichtungen zur Emissionsreduktion von Treibhausgasen und dem Ausmass bzw. der Veränderung der Cleantech-Spezialisierung eines Landes. Darüber hinaus steht auch der Zielerreichungsgrad mit der Cleantech-Spezialisierung in einem positiven Zusammenhang.
