This article explores the development of the green economy in particular locations, with the aim of identifying why some cities and regions have been successful in engendering green growth. It examines four key questions. What role does the enabling and facilitative state play in these cities and regions? What new institutional forms and governance structures are being developed? How do actors in particular cities and regions construct their green vision, and how do they encourage other actors to buy-in to this vision? How are links across levels and spatial scales developed to connect niches with the regime? It addresses these through a focus upon the Boston city-region in the USA, drawing upon both primary and secondary research material. It utilizes this case study example to re-examine and re-theorize work on sustainability transitions from a spatial perspective
