The urgency of transitioning to a low-carbon energy system to combat climate change requires interventions to curb fossil fuel extraction and supply. Whilst demand-side climate policies are acknowledged and utilized around the world, restrictive supply-side policies have been largely ignored. They therefore require increased scholarly and policy attention. This research aims to help fill this gap by characterizing and reviewing the nascent literature on supply-side climate policies. This review represents one small component of a larger multidisciplinary research study of climate mitigation strategies.
