Government often plays a crucial and active role for funding innovative activity. Almost every major technical change in recent years on the world can trace most of its funding back to state funding. Financing is often a well-recognized barrier to the development of clean energy technologies. There is, however, extremely insufficient research on how government can mobilize sufficient domestic finance for clean energy innovation and which policies are most effective in leverage investments. This research will explore how governments mobilize domestic finance for clean energy innovation based on four country cases, namely the United States, Germany, China, and India. Specifically, it will try to sheds lights on the following sub-questions: who are the key players participating in the financing process in clean energy sectors? Why do they provide financial resources to clean energy innovation? How do they share both the benefits and risks of clean energy investments? How do governments in these four counties shape this process?
