    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to test the design principles, identified as crucial for institutions governing long enduring common pool resources, on the use of the electromagnetic spectrum, a peculiar resource in many respects. The case is the medium wave band for broadcasting in Europe in the 1920s. As the spectrum is a resource dependent on technology for its use, the aim is also to investigate the influence of technology on the governing institutions.

    A Gap in the Grid: Attempts to introduce natural gas in Sweden 1967-19912013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis follows the process of introducing natural gas in Sweden and the construction of a Northern European gas grid from 1967 to 1991. Natural gas is a relatively unnoticed fuel in Sweden today, but this relative anonymity stands in contrast to an extensive historical activity that has taken place behind the scenes of Swedish energy policy. The single pipeline constructed between Denmark and Sweden in the early 1980s was both preceded and followed by many other attempts to construct a larger natural gas pipeline in the region made in the last 50 years. Åberg traces these attempts while discussing the complex and messy process of constructing and managing a transnational energy infrastructure.Åberg follows actors in Sweden and other countries in their attempts to negotiate and construct a natural gas infrastructure, and puts this process into a national as well as transnational context. The perceived risks and opportunities surrounding natural gas are examined, together with factors that have influenced the development of natural gas in a broader sense. By seeing the changing and messy natural gas projects as arenas where different actors construct and negotiate risks and opportunities, as well as contexualize the projects, Åberg shows how the natural gas sector in Sweden has evolved and taken shape.The study shows that natural gas in Sweden has suffered from unstable actor coalitions on different levels, a difficult market situation, and a changeful political context, especially with regard to energy policy. The import status of the fuel and the consequential transnationality of the natural gas infrastructure have also made the process of constructing a pipeline more complex. However, natural gas was introduced in Sweden, showing that when a strong enough actor coalition agreed that there was enough reason to warrant a natural gas introduction and was ready to join this endeavor, a connection could be achieved. This puts into question to what degree general explanations in terms of finance and policy drive energy decisions, and makes a case for showing how these explanations are adapted into their social and historical contexts in sometimes surprising ways.

    The Power of vision: Natural Gas fiction and the Decision Making Process2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the energy debate, energy carriers are often perceived as either saviours or villains, but most often as both. Fossil fuels power a large part of our society, but they also pollute and are sometimes extracted at large human costs. Nuclear power is efficient and powerful, but the consequences of using it could be potentially fatal. Ethanol is environmentally friendly, but may have negative societal consequences. The energy issue is a jungle of pros and cons, a jungle in which we have to navigate in order to make decisions about what we want our future to look like. Often, these decisions are informed by future visions in the form of scenarios, prognosis, and forecasts. In this paper, I will look at how politicians, engineers and other Swedish actors have navigated this jungle regarding the issue of natural gas in Sweden. This will lead me into the question of how decision-making regarding energy has been handled from the late 1960s to the 1980s, in a time when the future of our energy systems became more and more of an obsession for politicians and lay people alike.

     

    Although natural gas has never been a major fuel in Sweden, its presence has been steady in the energy debate for over 40 years. Especially during the 1970s and 1980s it was part of the plans to create a more sustainable national energy system. Natural gas was thought to become widely introduced in Sweden, and engineers, economics and civil servants were involved in an endless discussion regarding the pros and cons of the fuel. Further, the late 1960s and early 1970s was a time when future studies was forming itself as a field, and energy scenarios became more commonly used as one of the factors of decision-making. I want to couple these two processes together, and look at how energy scenarios were used by engineers and groups of interest over time when trying to influence politicians and navigate the process of introducing a new, unknown energy carrier into Sweden.

     

    This story raises several important issues. First of all, it can help us understand the role played by forecasts and scenarios in the decision-making process. The relation between visions of the future and our decision-making today is complex, and needs to be thoroughly analyzed and put in a historical perspective. Another issue regards the actors involved. Who used these future scenarios, and to what end?  Did the Swedish engineers and politicians gather around visions of a future natural gas infrastructure, or did they have diverging thoughts regarding what is a desirable development would be? In what way has different future scenarios been used as a power tool in the political decision-making surrounding energy issues?

     

    In my work I draw on literature regarding the relationships between engineers and politicians, and the influence of engineers on policy (Jasanoff, Hecht, Hughes, Micheletti, Sejersted, etc.). I aim to add to this literature by examining the practicalities of how actors try to gain power over the energy issue, using future visions as a tool. In doing this I also hope to contribute to the work done on future studies and energy forecasting (Smil, de Man, Baumgartner & Midttun).

    Witnessing our energy future2012Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Fossil fuels power a large part of our society, but they also pollute and aresometimes extracted at large human costs. Nuclear power is efficient andpowerful, but the consequences of using it could be potentially fatal.Ethanol is described both as environmental saviour and villain. The energyissue is a jungle of pros and cons in which we need to navigate in order tomake decisions about what we want our future to look like. One placewhere different ways to navigate the energy dilemma is often discussed is inscience fiction, (i.e the Day of the Triffids, Moon, the Matrix) and I want toexplore some of these narratives and the way they handle the issue overtime. Science fiction has for the past 100 years been a platform wheresocietal issues have been been brought out to the public, discussed, andinterpreted. But what can we learn from looking at the energy issue from ascience fiction perspective? How can we go further than a mere text/imageanalysis? Are there threads leading from fictional narratives into the “real”world, and what do these threads look like? Can popular culture expressionshelp us decide anything about our future, and in that case, is it possible tofind out how?
