Abstract or Description

This study involved twenty structured interviews with researchers, research and development (R&D) managers, and other experts in fossil-energy technologies from government, academia, and the private sector. The intent was to gain a deeper understanding of the kinds of developments that would constitute a radical innovation in fossil-energy technology and its potential impact in the associated environmental control domain. The meanings of related terms often used to describe innovations—such as breakthrough, discontinuity or disruptive—also were explored in these interviews.
