Abstract

This paper investigates Danish and American hydrogen fuel research from a modified technological innovation system (TIS) perspective. We ask: which approach to hydrogen research is more effective, and what do the differences between the two cases tell us about the research process and theories of innovation? To answer these questions, we begin by justifying our selection of hydrogen systems and Denmark and the United States as our case studies. We proceed to introduce a modified theoretical framework of TIS and focus on seven core elements of hydrogen research: knowledge development and diffusion, entrepreneurial experimentation, political and social influence, market formation, legitimation, resource mobilization, and positive externalities. We conclude by offering insights from our comparison as they relate to hydrogen research strategy and policy, effectiveness at achieving national goals, and the need for further research and better conceptual models about innovation.
