Example text

The Court verdict strengthened the case for the proponents of the feed-in tariff system. This, and the fact that in the years following 2001, the quota systems did not meet expectations in terms of cost-efficiency, prompted the Commission to abandon its strong preference for a quota system (Lauber, 2005). 2 Innovation systems approaches: diffusion of wind power technology Jacobsson and Johnson (2000) devised an analytical framework to study the diffusion of wind power technology, focusing on actors, networks and institutions.

Whereas competitive forms of learning remain confined within the boundaries of ideological coalitions, cooperative forms involve learning across ideological coalitions. Using this approach he elaborated how the small Danish manufacturers eventually overtook the large-scale turbine industry of California. The Danish success was partly related to the fact that there was room for diversity and for cooperative learning - more so than in the Californian situation, where the choice for a single option (large turbines) eventuated in a failed industry.

Although each local context has its own particularities, we can inquire into the structural conditions that have constrained or enabled local decision-making and project planning for wind power over time. Most of the national and international comparative studies discussed above have devoted little attention to opposition against wind power, and to how local opposition relates to local decision-making and project planning. These issues are partly bound up with energy policy, as some authors have pointed out that the feed-in tariff system has encouraged citizens to invest in wind power projects locally, which has positively affected local social acceptance (Agterbosch, 2006; Hvelplund, 2001; Lauber, 2004).
