Abstract

Highlights: The aim of this commentary is to discuss how to engage analytically with the changing spatial realities of clean-tech sectors and TIS. The commentary argues for a situated rather than a descriptive notion of context in TIS studies. The commentary suggests how concepts and mechanisms from economic geography can be incorporated into TIS research.
