    Abstract : Today humankind is facing numerous sustainability challenges that require us to question CO2 intensive practices like those present in the transport and energy sector. To meet those challenges, many countries have adopted ambitious climate targets. Achieving such targets requires an understanding of the wider socio-technical context of transitions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Shaping and Exploiting Technological Opportunities: The Case of Renewable Energy Technology in Sweden

    Author : Anna Bergek; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; capital goods industry; renewable energy; policy; strategy; technological opportunity; innovation system; industrial dynamics; technology diffusion; industry development;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on how the Swedish capital goods industry exploits (or fails to exploit) opportunities within renewable energy technology to build new growth industries and how it, in that process, shapes the diffusion of such technologies on the market. The thesis consists of a covering paper and the work contained in four appended papers. READ MORE

  3. 3. Diffusion of dynamic innovations : A case study of residential solar PV systems

    Author : Emrah Karakaya; Cali Nuur; Antonio Hidalgo; Anna Bergek; KTH; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Dynamic innovations; diffusion; residential solar; photovoltaics; time; space; Industriell ekonomi och organisation; Industrial Engineering and Management;

    Abstract : In the literature on diffusion of innovations, it is widely known that the characteristics and socio-environmental settings of adopters do evolve in space and time. What about innovations themselves? During the diffusion process, don’t some innovations continuously alter in space and time? If so, how does the dynamic character of an innovation influence the diffusion process? In previous research, it has been often assumed that innovations do not continuously alter or get modified when diffusing from a source to potential adopters. READ MORE

  4. 4. Entering renewable electricity production : An actor perspective

    Author : Ingrid Mignon; Anna Bergek; Gunnel Sundberg; Harlad Rohracher; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Renewable electricity production; new entrants; energy transition; energy policy; innovation; entrepreneurship; institutional theory; innovation-­adoption; implementation;

    Abstract : Although energy transition is considered one of the main challenges of our time, little attention has traditionally been paid to the actors participating in this transition, such as the producers of renewable electricity. Previous energy policy literature and policy- makers have assumed that these producers are incumbent actors of the current energy system, that is to say, large utilities producing both renewable and fossil-fueled electricity.

  5. 5. Inducing large-scale diffusion of innovation : An integrated actor- and system-level approach

    Author : Ingrid Mignon; Anna Bergek; Johanna Nählinder; Volker Hoffmann; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Innovation; large-scale diffusion; adopters; actor; system; drivers; challenges; motives; strategies; policies; renewable electricity; technology; intermediaries;

    Abstract : In order for the innovation process to be successful, not only do innovations need to be developed and reached the market, but, once they are available for users, they have to spread on a large scale. In the innovation literature, a complete explanation is lacking of why some innovations reach a phase of large-scale diffusion faster than others, including both actor- and system-level components.
