2. Enabling socio-technical transitions – electric vehicles and high voltage electricity grids as focal points of low emission futures
Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER

5. Innovation for biorefineries – Networks, narratives, and new institutions for the transition to a bioeconomy
Sammanfattning : The transition to a bioeconomy is dependent on transformative changes to technologies, organisations, and institutions, which jointly can be described as a socio-technical change. The thesis contributes to the understanding of how the transition is shaped by expectations on and collaborations for innovation forbiorefineries, which can produce chemicals, fuels, and materials needed in a bioeconomy.
