    Green Growth strategies need to adopt a broader perspective on change processes than conventional growth strategies as deep changes are needed in, for instance, energy production and consumption behaviour as well as natural resource use. Different levels of change need to be realized in a coherent and co-evolutionary manner. Based on transition studies, in particular a combination of the Multi-Level-Perspective (MLP) and the Technological Innovation System (TIS) approach and its application to a Finnish case study (the Eco-Viikki housing project), we identified drivers of and barriers to innovation by studying the existence or absence of innovation system functions. Using this conceptual background, policy recommendations can be derived in a systematic way to enable and accelerate the transition towards renewable energy in society.
