Abstract
Denmark and the Netherlands had different approaches to deal with the repercussions of the oil crisis of 1973: Denmark focused on the development of renewables, and the Netherlands developed their natural gas sector. The varying approaches create the possibility to measure and generalize the dynamics of energy innovations on CO2 output in small developed countries. This thesis relates the energy patents output of the Danish and the Dutch economy to the absolute and relative CO2 output, through the use of a vector error correction model. The main finding is that for both countries an increase in energy patents has a negative association on the relative CO2 output.
