|Abstract:||The typical focus of diffusion analysis on one new technology and patterns of its evolution in time tends to neglect important features of technological evolution such as the dynam-ics of technological competition and the importance of the institutional framework. This is particularly so for cleaner technologies which have to compete with well established tech-nologies and of which diffusion dynamics are related to environmental policy, too. In this paper a new conceptual approach to innovation diffusion building on insights of evolution-ary economic theory is proposed and applied to a case study on the diffusion of a cleaner iron making technology.|
