This report is the first report in a series of reports on energy innovation system indicators produced as part of the activities in the “EIS Strategic research alliance for Energy Innovation Systems and their dynamics – Denmark in global competition”. The work is based on a number of existing statistics and reports. Among these are the pilot report for a Nordic Energy Technology Scoreboard (Klitkou et al., 2010) and parts of the results of the eNERGIA project (Klitkou et al., 2008b). For this report the indicator based tables and figures have been updated and new developments in the discussion of indicators have been included. Moreover, the report is based on a survey of innovation activities and interaction carried out as part of the EIS project (Borup et al., 2012) as well as on earlier surveys and analyses carried out on Danish and Nordic level (Tanner et al., 2009), (Borup et al., 2008). The report received also valuable input from a project commissioned by IPTS. This project addressed co-operation patterns and knowledge flows in patent documents in the fields of wind energy, photovoltaic energy and concentrating solar power (Iversen and Patel, 2010). The results relevant for this project have informed this EIS report. The activities in the EIS research alliance are funded by the Danish Council for Strategic Research, primarily, and by the involved research organisations.
