Abstract
This thesis research analyzed policies that promote resource mobilization for the development of the Solar Water Heaters and Photovoltaic industries in Mexico. The main inquiry is to identify the role that technological complexity plays in promoting resource mobilization for sustainable transition policies. It is assumed that if the technology is complex, resources are obtained from extra-regional sources, while for simple technologies, resource can be developed locally. The results suggest that the types of policy approaches depend on the stage of the industry and on the resource promoted. The main implications are that policy must place emphasis in the local arrangements to handle extra-regional resources
