    The Decay of Communism: Managing Spent Nuclear Fuel in the Soviet Union2010In: Risk, Hazards & Crisis in Public Policy, ISSN 1944-4079, E-ISSN 1944-4079, Vol. 1, no 4Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to explore the dynamics of spent nuclear fuel management in the Soviet Union, from the origins of nuclear engineering in the 1930s to the collapse of the country in 1991. Spent nuclear fuel is analyzed in relation to other components of what is referred to as the “nuclear fuel system,” such as nuclear weapons production, breeder reactor development, uranium enrichment, and the operation of nuclear power plants. The article shows that spent fuel management in the Soviet Union centered on military applications from the 1940s up to the 1960s, after which enormous efforts were devoted to exploiting military competencies for civil purposes. A “tandem” system was partly realized in this context, in which spent fuel from VVER nuclear power plants, submarine reactors, and research installations was reprocessed and used for the production of RBMK (Chernobyl-type) fuel. The plutonium gained did not find any use, however, due to failures in fast breeder developments. RBMK spent fuel was not reprocessed. The Soviets never officially discussed the option of direct disposal of RBMK fuel and strictly distinguished between “spent fuel” and “nuclear waste.” Facing stagnation in reprocessing and breeder technology, the development came to focus increasingly on expanding interim storage capacities. But far-reaching R&D efforts in the field of nuclear waste management and storage methods meant that the Soviet Union, at the time of its collapse, had accumulated a considerable competence that might turn out to be of great value, should a direct disposal strategy be officially considered in the future.

    The Dynamics of Innovation in Eastern Europe: Lessons from Estonia2005Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Building strong and dynamic systems of innovation constitutes a key challenge for the former post-socialist economies of Central and Eastern Europe. This book develops a strong conceptual and empirical foundation for understanding how such dynamic systems may emerge. The Dynamics of Innovation in Eastern Europe explains, in particular, how this has been possible in the case of the Estonian system of innovation in telecommunications. The book shows that the socialist historical heritage, and in particular inherited competencies, may be used in highly creative ways for generating dynamic innovation in the post-socialist context. It also uncovers the complex and multifaceted ways in which the geographical and cultural proximity to Western Europe can be creatively used as a powerful resource in the pursuit of building systems of innovation in the East. Moreover, the book demonstrates that it is possible for East European systems of innovation to develop highly creative domestic dynamics without necessarily imitating Western systems or styles of innovation. Providing a unique empirical analysis of how systems of innovation undergo far-reaching transformation and change, this book will be of interest to economists and scholars involved in issues relating to innovation, technology, economic development and East-West integration. Policymakers in the EU and in Central and East European countries and practitioners involved in innovation-related activities will also find it of great appeal.

    The Emergence of Creative Styles of Innovation in Central and Eastern Europe: The Challenge from Estonia2004In: The Knowledge-Based Economy in Transition Countries: Selected Issues / [ed] Piech, K., London: School of Slavonic and East European Studies , 2004, p. 225-260Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Innovation continues to suffer from a peculiar neglect in the broad field of Central and East European (CEE) studies. In particular, surprising lylittle is still known about the ways in which real-world systems of innovation function in post-socialist Central and Eastern Europe and the actual processes through which they have emerged during the past 10-15 years. The present chapter seeks to contribute to a better understanding of the dynamics of innovation in CEE by historically explaining the emergence of post-socialist ‘styles of innovation’. As an example of the emergence of ‘creative’ innovation styles, the chapter discusses the Estonian telecommunications sector. Rather than trying to measure ‘how innovative’ CEE is, the focus is on the qualitative characteristics of the innovations that do occur, who the innovators are, how innovation is organised, and what role institutional change has played at different stages of development. It is argued that in order to explain the characteristics of systems of innovation in CEE, a deep historical dimension is needed in the analysis. In the case of Estonia, the combined effect of an unusually close and historically rooted cooperation with Sweden and Finland and the emergence of new technological paradigms in the telecommunications sector has paved the way for post-socialist innovative activities that in several cases have been surprisingly creative and aggressive.

    The internationalization of the European electricity industry: The case of Vattenfall2009In: Utilities Policy, ISSN 0957-1787, E-ISSN 1878-4356, Vol. 17, no 3-4, p. 258-266Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explains how the Swedish state-owned electricity company Vattenfall managed to become the most successful foreign player on the German electricity market. It does so by providing an in-depth historical analysis of Vattenfall's transformation from a national into an international actor, a process that proved long and difficult. The article starts out by identifying the transformation pressures that Vattenfall faced in the late 1980s. It then continues with a detailed analysis of Vattenfall's response to these pressures, culminating in a seemingly sudden wave of major acquisitions in Germany in the period 1999-2002.

    The Saudi Arabia of the Far East?: China's rise and fall as an oil exporter2015In: Extractive Industries and Society, ISSN 2214-790X, Vol. 2, no 3, p. 411-418Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    China's international activities in the oil industry have figured prominently in the public debate in recent years. Whereas the focus today is on China's oil imports and oil-related investments abroad, this article takes a step back to analyze a period in time during which China's most important international role was that of an oil exporter. In the course of a few years in the 1970s, China's domestic oil production grew much more rapidly than domestic demand, leading some analysts in the West to envision China as a major world oil power in the making - a "Saudi Arabia of the Far East." The article traces the evolution of this debate, focusing not only on the twists and turns that made the vision possible in the first place, but also on the machinations that ultimately made actors and analysts conclude that China's future would not be in exports, after all, but in massive imports of oil.

    Energy dependence in historical perspective: The geopolitics of smaller nations2019In: Energy Policy, ISSN 0301-4215, E-ISSN 1873-6777, Vol. 127, p. 438-444Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Studies of energy and geopolitics have been almost totally monopolized by analyses of the largest and most powerful countries in the world. This article argues that it is crucial to include the world's smaller and less powerful nations, too, into the analysis. Adopting a systems perspective, the article discusses Europe's smaller nations that have come to depend on other countries for various activities relating to their fuel supplies, and how they have sought to cope with these dependencies over time. It discusses, in particular, two overarching strategies in this context: first, investments in domestic energy sources, and secondly, efforts to cope with – rather than to reduce – energy imports. Smaller nations have often been more dependent and more vulnerable than the larger countries in the geopolitical energy arena. However, there are numerous exceptions to this pattern, especially in terms of the critical hub positions that a range of smaller nations have managed to secure in the international energy trade. Furthermore, Europe's smaller countries have had a more narrow range of methods at their disposal than the larger countries when it comes to coping with energy dependence – but perhaps not as narrow as commonly believed.

    The politics of electricity deregulation in Sweden: the art of acting on multiple arenas2010In: Energy Policy, ISSN 0301-4215, E-ISSN 1873-6777, Vol. 38, no 5, p. 2245-2254Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates the deregulation of the Swedish electricity industry as a political process. Discussions about deregulation started in the late 1980s. A first step in the process was the corporatization of the Swedish state-owned utility Vattenfall in 1992. The deregulatory process culminated with the new Electricity Law, which entered into force in 1996. We investigate in historical depth how a diverse range of actors contributed to shaping both the new institutional environment and the political discourse. The article scrutinizes not only the formal political decision-making process and the activities of a variety of ministries, boards and agencies, but also the processes by which energy companies and other relevant industrial actors influenced the outcome of the regulatory reforms. We explicitly focus on activities taking place on both political and business arenas, showing that major stakeholders acted on several arenas simultaneously to influence the deregulatory process and that the large power companies were most skilful in doing so. We also show that activities on the political and business arenas mutually reinforced each other in shaping the new regulatory framework.

    Europe's Infrastructure Transition: Economy, War, Nature2016Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Europe's infrastructure both united and divided peoples and places via economic systems, crises, and wars. Some used transport, communication, and energy infrastructure to supply food, power, industrial products, credit, and unprecedented wealth; others mobilized infrastructure capacities for waging war on scales hitherto unknown. Europe's natural world was fundamentally transformed; its landscapes, waterscapes, and airscapes turned into infrastructure themselves. Europe's Infrastructure Transition reframes the conflicted story of modern European history by taking material networks as its point of departure. It traces the priorities set and the choices made in constructing transnational infrastructure connections - within and beyond the continent. Moreover, this study introduces an alternative set of historically-key individuals, organizations, and companies in the making of modern Europe and analyzes roads both taken and ignored.

    Under the Damocles Sword: Managing Swedish energy dependence in the twentieth century2019In: Energy Policy, ISSN 0301-4215, E-ISSN 1873-6777, p. 157-164Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 1900 a Swedish member of parliament argued that Sweden had a Damocles Sword hanging over it due to the country's rapidly growing imports of coal. This energy import dependence has continued to plague Sweden ever since. While coal dominated imports in the first half of the twentieth century, oil and uranium dominated in the second half. This article examines how Swedish public and private actors coped with the country's energy dependence. Several crises prompted such efforts. Coal strikes in the Interwar years and oil embargoes in the 1970s spurred diversification and collaboration with other importing countries. During World War II Sweden built trustful coal relations with Nazi Germany and stockpiled coal. In the post-war era fear of the international oil majors spurred attempts to increase public control over energy imports, and a state-owned company for foreign oil exploration was set up. Moreover, during and after wars and other acute crises Swedish actors intensified their efforts to exploit more of the country's domestic energy resources. However, when the crisis was over it often proved to be cheaper to import energy from abroad. Thus imports have remained high and the Damocles Sword is still hanging over Sweden.
