    Resande, planering, makt2008Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Samhällsvetenskaplig och humanistisk forskning har en viktig roll i att bredda kunskapsunderlagen för svensk transportplanering. Den här boken gör just det. Den har författats av forskare inom forskarnätverket FAST, ett samarbete mellan Linköpings universitet och VTI. Resande, planering, makt presenterar flera spännande nya perspektiv på resande och transporter. Boken vänder sig till alla som på något sätt arbetar med, forskar om eller intresserar sig för transporter och transportplanering. Några av de frågor som behandlas är kvinnors och äldres villkor i trafiken, regionförstoring, medborgarinflytande och riskhantering. "En av den här bokens förtjänster är att den i hög grad handlar om olika aspekter av makt: makten att formulera problemen och makten att tolka förutsättningarna för beslut och planering."- Emin Tengström, professor emeritus, avdelningen för humanteknologi vid Göteborgs universitet.

    Brand name electricity: shaping new relationships between utilities and users in Sweden in the 1990s2001In: Building sustainable energy systems : Swedish experiences / [ed] http://libris.kb.se/hitlist?d=libris&q=Building+sustainable+energy+systems+%3a+Swedish+experiences&f=simp&spell=true&hist=true&p=1, Stockholm: Svensk byggtjänst , 2001, -552 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This book provides insight into how Swedish energy systems have evolved in the last three decades. Twenty-five Swedish experts have been invited to give their views on energy strategies, programmes, policies and technology responses applied in Sweden. The volume is aimed at a broad international audience and is a major source of inspiration for those concerned with building a sustainable energy future.

    District heating comes to town: The social shaping of an energy system1992Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis deals with the introduction of district heating in an "ordinary" Swedish town: Mjölby. The process was initiated in 1974 and the decision to build was taken in 1979. In the following years pipelines were laid down and the system was gradually built. In 1987, a permanent heat plant was ready to assume operation. The study deals with the decision-making process and the first ten years of systems operation 1980-1990.

    The system is recognized as an example of a grid-based energy system. Its properties and the empirical findings of the study are analyzed with the help of modern theories of technical systems, in particular those relating to large technical systems, as well as theories of technology viewed as actor-networks. From an organizational point of view, the configuration of interests around this energy system can be regarded as a grid-based multiorganization, in which many organizations (or parts thereof) which otherwise do not have much in common interact to achieve a shared purpose. The empirical investigation, which is built on document studies and a large number of interviews, demonstrates among other things the manner in which new actors were successively enrolled into the multi organization for district heating. The multiorganization is characterized by inherent tensions as well as a lack of sovereign control by any one actor.

    The thesis consists of two parts. In part I the problem, the town and the actual building process are described (chapters 1-3). Existing theories for the analysis of systembuilding are presented, and their relevance to the problem at hand is discussed (chapter 4).

    Part II presents the empirical findings, structured in the form of "five critical issues" of technological system-building. In chapter 5 the focus is on the decision-making process: whether or not to build a district heating system. Chapter 6 disusses how and why the organizational format of part-municipally owned limited company to run the system was decided upon. An extremely sensitive issue is how to get subscribers, in time with systems expansion and on mutually acceptable terms; marketing strategies and consumer responses to as well as their experiences of district heating are discussed in chapter 7. In chapter 8 the conflict-ridden regulatory process, centering on where to place the central heating plant, is discussed. Environmental and other interests forced the system-builders to back down from their first siting choice. How to fend off (but also live with) competion from other systems such as resistance electric heat and heat pumps, is the issue at the center of chapter 9. Finally the thesis summarizes the reasons why Mjölby succeeded in this challenging task, what its experience suggests about the social organization of grid-based energy systems, and what criteria can be seen as contributingto a "good" system.

    Do electrons have politics? Constructing user identities in Swedish electricity2004In: Science, Technology and Human Values, ISSN 0162-2439, E-ISSN 1552-8251, Vol. 29, no 4, 486-511 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Electricity systems in many parts of Europe and the United States are currently undergoing transformations that have potentially profound implications for managerial practice and the politics of user identities within these systems. After more than a century of "universal service" that provided technical goods and services to all users on essentially equal terms, utility managers are now constructing and exploiting heterogeneity and difference among users. This article explores local managerial practices within Swedish electricity in the mid-1990s, where managers promoted "brand-name" electricity as a strategy for configuring identities for users, their utilities, and electricity itself. These dynamics are analyzed using theoretical perspectives from two bodies of science and technology studies on configuring users' identities. The article then analyzes the emergent practices and their theoretical and political implications for understanding of how and why artifacts, users, and organizational entities are coconstituted in ongoing techno-scientific practice in infrastructural systems.

    Om positionering bland hjältar, missgynnade och osynliga: reflektioner kring forskarens val och politik.2005In: Kunskapens vägar och forskningens praktik: en vänbok till Boel Berner / [ed] Ulf Mellström, Lund: Arkiv förlag , 2005, -153 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Boel Berner har under sin akademiska karriär plöjt upp ett intellektuellt landskap där frågor om teknisk rationalitet, utbildning, ingenjörsarbete, sociologi, historia, genus, teknikhistoria, riskhantering, metodologi och skrivande står i fokus. Hennes, böcker och artiiklar, forskning och handledning har rört sig i detta landskap, i vad som hennes kolleger, kallar "Bernerland". Där tar denna bok, som tillägnas Boel Berner, sin utgångspunkt.Hur formuleras frågor, skrivs avhandlingar och byggs akademiska karriärer? Vad är ett tankekollektiv och hur formas en akademisk seminariemiljö? Hur väljer forskaren perspektiv och studieobjekt, och vad betyder dessa val som politiska ställningstaganden? Hur viktiga är detaljerna för trovärdigheten hos en teori? Dessa är några av de frågor som behandlas av bokens författare, tio forskare som känner Boel på olika sätt. Personliga berättelser från universitetsvärlden blandas med reflektioner över forskningens villkor.

    Constructing Risk and Safety in Technological Practice2003Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Modern technological systems entail risks and uncertainties of hitherto unknown dimensions. This book discusses the construction of risk and safety within a variety of empirical contexts where technologies and their risk are debated and handled by individuals, groups or organizations. With contributions from leading scholars from Europe and the USA, it presents original theoretical discussions, linked to detailed empirical case studies.
