    International Competitiveness of the wind power industry: The case of Gamesa S.A.2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The modern lifestyle is highly dependent on the electricity consumption, which demand is expected to continue growing worldwide, especially in those developing areas where the whole economy is transforming. Until now, most of this electricity demand had been supplied through the combustion of fossil fuels or nuclear power. But the utilization of these energy sources to power the human activity is unsustainable because of limitless of the resources and the hazardous emissions and wastes that they generate. That is why since few decades ago the wind power became one of the best-positioned renewable energy in terms of costs effectiveness as a viable alternative to the energetic model based on pollutant fossil fuels. This technology was firstly developed and implemented on those countries with a traditional environmental conscientiousness, but as the global warming issue increased new countries were interested to use wind power as a clean and sustainable energy source. The growing wind power demand of developing countries has changed in few years the entire industry, because new local manufacturers have appeared thanks to the government renewable policy, which main objective is to develop a strong domestic wind power industry capable of lead the world transformation to a clean energy model.

    The thesis defines the most commons renewable energy policies, and focus in the policy used in China with the aim to analyze if it is promoting or damaging the expansion of wind power use because of the priority is protect its own domestic wind power industry from international firms. The conclusions are that those protectionist policies are useful in the early stage of the industry development but the government must know the exact moment in which these subsidies and supporting mechanisms become counterproductive. If those are used during a prolonged period, then companies become dependent on subsidies and don’t act like in free markets where the innovation is the key to gain and maintain sustainable competitive advantage.

    Towards a sustainable automotive industry: experiences from the development of emission control systems2007Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    From the mid-1970s and on, the contribution to air pollution of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides from gasoline passenger cars in the developed world has been reduced through co-evolution of regulation and commercial introduction of catalytic emission control technology, now part of hundreds of millions of cars, trucks and buses worldwide.

    This dissertation is a disaggregated study of the global introduction of catalytic emission control technology as a measure to reduce local air pollution. The introduction of the “three-way” catalyst for gasoline passenger cars is studied for four countries. Present innovation in diesel engine emission control is studied. Technological change is analyzed regarding the process of innovation, the innovation system and its stakeholders. Results are evaluated for implications for innovation and regulatory policy for coming environmental challenges.

    Automotive catalysis is an example of environmentally motivated innovation, including problem definition, public regulation, corporate market and non-market strategies, invention, variety, selection, technology transfer, mass diffusion and the ongoing coevolution of emission-abating policies and technical development.

    Common denominators for successful technological or market innovations is a participatory dialogue around structured and tiered regulatory roadmaps, international competition, support by international networks and conducive local public opinion. The near-global introduction of the three-way catalyst was complex and highly dependent on local context and conditions, suggesting that any general “global” innovation and regulation strategy to address present and future local or global problems must be reviewed with an understanding of local barriers and drivers for environmentally motivated innovation.

    Given the stakeholders and technical challenges of different technological regimes to mitigate climate change, it is concluded that increased fuel efficiency and the introduction of plug-in hybrids are possible trajectories for sustainable mobility.

    Evolving Technological Systems for Diesel Engine Emission Control: Balancing GHG and Local Emissions,2009In: Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy, ISSN 1618-954X, E-ISSN 1618-9558, Vol. 11, no 3, p. 339-365Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Triad-North America, Japan and Europe-now addresses diesel vehicle emissions by requiring 40-80% reductions from new heavy-duty trucks and passenger car diesels. The requirements imply introduction of new technology and fuels stepwise during 2005-2012 that will leave emissions from new diesel vehicles on par with the levels of gasoline passenger cars. This paper studies the recent development of diesel engine emission control in response to new regulation. The role for Swedish actors, including two of the world's major truck manufacturers, is especially studied. The increasingly global Technological System for diesel engine emission control is compelled to manage further reductions of nitrogen oxides emissions and fuel consumption and CO2, the balance of which has been the subject of several large legal disputes. Swedish OEMs are at present split into two technological sub-trajectories, while the future may be multi-pronged and include new engine types and fuels. Interestingly, similar commercial advantages that were sought by the pioneers introducing advanced feedback loop catalysis in gasoline cars in the 1970s are now sought by some heavy-duty diesel engine manufacturers by conversely avoiding the mainstream-Selective catalytic reduction-solution. Incremental innovation is the new radical.

    Non-science based innovativeness: On Capabilities relevant to generate profitable novelty2005In: Perspectives on Economic Political and Social Integration, ISSN 1233-6009, Vol. 11, no 1/2, p. 123-170Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The starting point of the paper is the widely held assumption that the ability to permanently generate and market innovations is one major precondition to maintain competitiveness of European based units and thus to contribute to employment. The authors argue that R&D in the established sense is only one and mostly not the most important asset for an organisation's innovativeness. Drawing on the literature on dynamic capabilities a concept of innovation enabling capabilities is introduced. It is composed of two dimensions, transformative and configurational capabilities. The former focuses on the enduring ability of an organisation to transform globally available general knowledge into locally specific knowledge and competence, the latter on the enduring ability to synthesise novelty by creating new configurations of knowledge, artefacts and actors. Three specific aspects of configurational capabilities are established, cognitive: configuring distributed knowledge of different kind; organisational: configuring distributed actors and other repositories of knowledge and knowhow; and design: configuring functional features and solutions. The distinction between transformative and configurational capabilities is strictly analytical; empirically the two dimensions are tightly interwoven. And innovations require both. The different dimensions of innovation enabling capabilities are illustrated drawing on examples from a selection of company case studies conducted during the PILOT project.

    Kan krishantering och klimatomställning kombineras?2009In: Ekonomisk Debatt, ISSN 0345-2646, Vol. 37, no 2, p. 1-15Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    I artikeln diskuteras hur den kortsiktiga hanteringen av dagens kris kan kombineras med långsiktig klimatomställning. Omfattande konsumtionsstimulanser, som nu införs i allt fler länder, bidrar sannolikt till att förvärra de omvandlingsproblem som klimatkrisen aktualiserar. Med utgångspunkt i en klimatanpassad keynesmodell undersöker artikeln villkoren för en krispolitikmed dubbla ambitioner. Utmaningen här är att skapa en kombination av stödför uthållighetsskapande investeringar och uthållig konsumtion på bekostnad av klimatbelastande konsumtion för att både gynna sysselsättningen på kort siktoch påskynda den långsiktiga strukturomvandlingen. Artikeln ger exempel påhur en sådan politik kan bedrivas och visar att regeringens nuvarande politik pekar i en annan riktning.

    Corporate strategic adaptability to climate change: An explorative study on 1000 European Annual CEO letters 2000 - 20082010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The executive leadership vision is vital in corporate-wide development and implementation of a corporate strategy. The vision on climate change, among other strategic issues, is expressed in annual CEO letters. This study applies a content analysis approach to review 1000 annual reports from European publicly‐traded companies published in years 2000 through 2008. The content analysis of the CEO letters indicate that: (a) corporate interest in the climate change was nearly nonexistent prior to 2004; (b) the greatest interest in the issues was shown in 2007, but since then interest has declined; and (c) meanwhile interest in external economic conditions doubled in 2008 compared to 2006. In summary, our findings raise questions as to whether corporate interest in climate change issues already has peaked, even as well adapted by industry as can be reasonably expected, or if environmental interest will rise again after the current global financial crisis is over.

    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this article is to discuss the actors involved, and the arguments used, in the process leading to the implementation of The Road Plan for Sweden. The Road Plan, a 20-year program to improve and modernize Sweden, aimed to rebuild and adapt the country's network of roads to suit the needs of mass motorization. It marked a breakthrough as a new kind of far-reaching societal planning, with the car as the point of departure. This article analyzes the means by which technical ideas and planning approaches developed elsewhere found their way into the plan. The Swedish road system was connected to the European road network, but the technical ideas of traffic engineeringon which the plan rested derived from an even wider base that reached all the way to the United States. This article investigates and explains the influence of the international road and car lobby—specifically the International Road Federation and its "local branch" the Swedish Road Federation—in encouraging the adoption of American-based traffic engineering ideals in the Swedish Road Plan.

    Institutional investors' holdings surrounding equity rights offerings2012In: Global Finance Journal, ISSN 1044-0283, E-ISSN 1873-5665, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 125-140Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We examine shareholding surrounding Swedish rights offerings using detailed information on the ownership in firms. We analyze shareholding levels and their changes for domestic and foreign institutional investors. As institutional holdings change, domestic institutions increase their holdings more than foreign institutions. Our examination of low and high buying activities by institutional investors surrounding rights offerings shows no stock picking ability, thus not supporting the "smart-money hypothesis" (Gibson et al., 2004). We also find that investor domicile influences firm value following the offering. Overall, foreign investors exhibit a strong and opposite directional reaction to adverse selection costs than domestic investors.

    Creating Advantage: On the complexity of industrial knowledge formation in the knowledge-based economy2009Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Knowledge as a resource and knowledge formation as a process are seen as central to providing nations and regions as well as firms with a competitive advantage. This is captured by the view that the economic and industrial landscape is currently undergoing a transformation towards a knowledge-based economy. This dissertation engages with two views that have gained great influence in the discussions – in academia as well as in policy – on this industrial transformation. This concerns the view on which types of knowledge formation processes that are seen to actually provide a competitive advantage. There is today a prevailing tendency to connect the creation of competitive advantage to research-intensive, so-called high-tech, activities. It also concerns the view on where these knowledge formation processes take place. Much inspired by innovative and high-tech regions, competitive advantage is often closely associated with the role of geographical proximity for knowledge formation. The aim of this dissertation is to develop our understanding of the role of those knowledge formation processes that currently fall outside what is captured by these prevailing views. Three research questions are addressed. First, what is the role of non-research intensive knowledge formation processes in the creation of competitive advantage? Second, how can knowledge formation processes connected to the creation of regional competitive advantage be promoted? Third, what is the role of proximity in knowledge formation processes in the creation of competitive advantage? A qualitative case study approach is adopted for the empirical part of the research, consisting of one case study where low- and medium-tech industrial activities are studied and one case study where the regional dimension of knowledge formation is studied. Personal interviews constitute the major part of the empirical material. The research findings give evidence that reveals shortcomings in theory as well as in policy practice in regards both these prevailing views. It is shown that low- and medium-tech activities are still highly relevant, not only on their own but for the industry as a whole. Further, current forces of globalisation call for an approach to regional development that includes a dual focus of strengthening regional connections as well as facilitating and promoting extra-regional connections. This is particularly important in small, open economies such as Sweden. Further, the finings are in line with those requesting a multidimensional approach to the concept of proximity – one that regards proximity not only as a concept with geographical connotation but also with reference to proximity in context, cognition or value-systems. The dissertation suggests instead that an approach to industrial activities that assumes that those firms, regions and countries that can manage complex knowledge formation processes may develop competitive advantages. It is this ability to achieve and manage sticky processes in a slippery world that is essential for the creation of competitive advantage. And we are more likely to identify these particular competitive advantages on the firm level than on the industry level. Within every industry, there are firms that can manage more suitable ‘bundles’ of knowledge bases, network connections etc, which enable them to adapt at a lesser cost (costs can for instance be measured in terms of efforts, money or time) than other firms within the same industry. This is important to acknowledge – in policy as well as in theory – in order to not exclude important parts of what contributes to industrial competitive advantage in the knowledge-based economy.

    Global knowledge creation - Exploring dimensions of proximity2007In: ISMOT'07: Proceedings of the Fifth International Symposium on Management of Technology, Vols 1 and 2: Managing Total Innovation And Open Innovation In The 21st Century / [ed] Chen, J; Xu, QR; Wu, XB, 2007, p. 48-52Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to explore the connection between proximity and knowledge creation. As firms are acting in an increasingly distributed fashion, the understanding and analysis of complex knowledge creation cannot be restricted primarily to geographically close relations. Instead, in line with current theories on the actual spatiality of innovation and learning, it is suggested that an alternative view on proximity - relational proximity - better captures knowledge creation in transnational firms.

    Globalisation of corporate knowledge formation: enabling proximity through organisational coordination mechanismsIn: Industry and Innovation, ISSN 1366-2716, E-ISSN 1469-8390Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper connects to a stream of literature that emphasises the importance of effective utilization of dispersed knowledge in the MNC organisation. It also connects to the recent developments of the proximity concept, primarily driven by economic geographers. The paper seeks to contribute further to our understanding of the relationship between proximity and the management of corporate knowledge formation. In particular, the intention is to review the organisational coordination mechanisms and their potential to create additional dimensions of proximity than the geographical proximity that comes with co-location of corporate activities. From both theory and empirical studies it can be concluded that proximity matters, also in long-distance relationships. However, the findings in this study disagree with the strong focus on (permanent) geographical proximity. Drawing on the experiences of distributed R&D from a case study of a Swedish-based multinational company, the paper points to the role of coordination mechanisms as an important tool to create other dimensions of proximity in the distributed organisation.

    From Grounded Skills to Creativity: On the Transformation of Mining Regions in the Knowledge Economy2006In: Journal of Industrial Relations, ISSN 0022-1856, E-ISSN 1472-9296, Vol. 48, no 5, p. 615-627Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to explore the role of creativity for high-performance innovative activity. It is our conjecture that this approach enables us to go beyond the dominant science-focus of the present discourse on the transformation to a knowledge-based society. In line with the first part of the Schumpeterian definition of innovation: creative combination, the ability to be creative draws on dispersed - new and old, external and internal, scientific and non-scientific - knowledge sources. The article is primarily a theoretical and conceptual exercise: however, we relate our discussions to empirical findings from mature manufacturing industries. The discussions are also related to the current industrial transformation in the Iron Ore Belt in Sweden, and the possible challenges this entails for a region characterized by a strong tradition of large-firm domination and natural resource-based industry. In the current transformation, this region must find new ways to both encourage and support economic and technological development - something which may find its base not only in scientific skills in a narrow sense, but also in new attitudes to industrial creativity.
