Innovation-environment interactions

Innovative technologies generally have a range of complex interactions with the natural environment, both positive and negative, as perceived by different societal actors. They can provide more environmentally sustainable systems and improve the quality of life. Achieving the desired benefits while minimising the negative aspects requires an integrated and inclusive analytical approach. Innogen conducts in-depth, rigorous research into these innovation-environment interactions to support the delivery of optimal environmental outcomes from the introduction of innovative technologies.
