Book Description :

This thesis researches the role of the public in governmental wind farm decision-making procedures in the Netherlands. Wind farms are an essential part of the Dutch energy transition towards to a CO2 neutral society. For a successful realisation of wind farms it is important that the Dutch society supports this realisation. Unfortunately, many wind farm plans so far have been met with substantial societal resistance. For a long time this phenomenon was explained by the self-interest based Not-In-My-Backyard (NIMBY) theory. However, recent studies suggest a strong link to the decision-making processes leading to the realisation of wind farms. Therefore, this thesis studies the relation between government and the public during the governmental decision-making process of a wind farm. This concerns an interdisciplinary study into the concept of public participation on the basis of fundamental legal and political science theories. Both disciplines have studied the concept of public participation in detail and both lead to different analysis and conclusions. This theoretical framework results in an evaluative norm, namely the deliberative ideal, in which processes focus on the common good and dialogue rather than individual interests. This thesis secondly analyses how the concept of public participation is implemented in the wind farm relevant legal frameworks: Dutch administrative, environmental and spatial planning law. On the basis of this analysis and a case study we arrive at the conclusion that the legal implementation does not meet the deliberative ideal and make some suggestions to improve these decision-making procedures.

Book Description :

"This important book interrogates scholarship on sustainability transitions with insights from Science and Technology studies (STS) by focusing on pilot projects. The book urges us to look beyond technological solutionism, to examine how the energy transition also requires experimentation and even transformation in social domains. This is a valuable contribution to discussions about how to make energy transitions just, fair and more humane, and it will be an important resource for students and scholars alike. Highly recommended!" - Benjamin K. Sovacool, University of Sussex, UK and Aarhus University Denmark This open access book examines the role of pilot and demonstration projects as crucial devices for conducting innovation in the context of the energy transition. Bridging literature from sustainability transitions and Science and Technology Studies (STS), it argues that such projects play a crucial role, not only in shaping future energy and mobility systems, but in transforming societies more broadly. Pilot projects constitute socio-technical configurations where imagined future realities are materialized. With this as a backdrop, the book explores pilot projects as political entities, focusing on questions of how they gain their legitimacy, which resources are mobilized in their production, and how they can serve as sites of public participation and the production of energy citizenship. The book argues that such projects too often have a narrow technology focus, and that this is a missed opportunity. The book concludes by critically discussing the potential roles of research and innovation policy in transforming how such projects are configured and conducted. Marianne Ryghaug is a professor of Science and Technology Studies at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology where she leads the research group on Energy, Climate and Environment. Over the last twenty years, her work has focused on the linkages between energy and climate policy, technological development and innovation, and public participation. Tomas Moe Skjølsvold is a professor of Science and Technology Studies at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. He is the deputy director of the Norwegian Centre for Energy Transition Strategies (NTRANS) and has published extensively on socio-technical aspects of energy transitions, as well as scientific processes within climate and sustainability science over the last years.--

Book Description :

The Regulation and Policy of Latin American Energy Transitions examines the ongoing revolution within the energy landscape of Latin America. This book includes real-world examples from across the continent to demonstrate the current landscape of energy policy in Latin America. It focuses on distributed energy resources, including distributed generation, energy efficiency and microgrids, but also addresses the role of less common energy sources, such as geothermal and biogas, as well as discusses the changing role of energy actors, where consumers become prosumers or prosumagers, and utilities become service providers. The legal frameworks that are still hampering the transformation of the energy landscape are explored, together with an analysis of the economic, planning-related and social aspects of energy transitions, which can help address the issue of how inequalities are affecting and being affected by energy transitions. The book is suitable for policy makers, lawyers, economists and social science professionals working with energy policy, as well as researchers and industry professionals in the field. It is an ideal source for anyone involved in energy policy and regulation across Latin America. Reviews key legal and policy features defining success and failure within the diverse Latin American energy transitions Provides clear descriptions and comparisons of current and potential future policy frameworks in Latin America across differing social, economic, geo-political and policy contexts Analyzes the potential role of new technologies and practices in developing the region's energy economy Poses key regulatory challenges and possible means to finance the envisioned transitions

Book Description :

The Fukushima disaster of 2011 shook the globe, arousing warm debate and new research within the academic fields of countries in both the West and the East on issues related to nuclear security, public trust, government governance, risk governance and risk perception along with technological and social aspects. The Fukushima incident not only revealed the importance of risk governance in the East Asian region, but also became an important turning point in the restructuring of energy in several East Asian nations. However, the regulatory culture in East Asian countries is by nature different to that of their western counterparts; the history and culture of East Asia has formed East Asian countries’ unique regulatory characteristics. This book aims to establish a risk governance structure for the East Asian region, providing a completely new perspective for both practical implementation and the academic field. It focusses on the problems of risk governance in East Asia. Through a discussion of the risk related issues raised by contemporary globalization, this book outlines the unique form of East Asia’s risk governance architecture. It brings together the work of top academics from Japan, South Korea and Taiwan to provide a common picture of how these three countries’ governments are dealing with the energy transition brought on by the climate change crisis. The various aspects of East Asia’s unique regulatory culture and governance models are placed into context, while East Asia’s risk governance theoretical framework is outlined.

Book Description :

As innovation and economies of scale facilitate the rapid adoption of renewable energy technologies, growing socio-political factors remain a key challenge to the achievement of energy transition. The study of large-scale wind farms offers a clear example of the growing impacts of socio-political barriers on implementation rates for renewables. Rapidly decreasing technological costs are being matched by increasingly heated public opposition to wind farm proposals, which, in turn, have put the spotlight on public participation as a key tool to increase social acceptance. Most of the literature on public participation in the wind energy sector has focused on creating a compelling case for a shift from technocratic decision-making to a more participatory approach. The role of local authorities in implementing this shift has attracted considerably less attention, despite being recognised as significant. To address this gap, this thesis critically explored the role of local governments in New Zealand and Italy in the co-construction of three key elements of public participation: the issue, the public, and the practices. Interviews with key informants were conducted in New Zealand and Italy, alongside a comprehensive document and policy analysis. This cross-country comparison revealed significant differences in legislated participatory requirements, but also substantial similarities in the local discourse around participation. First, in both countries, there was an underlying tension between government commitment to public participation and to renewable energy development. These competing priorities risked reducing participatory practices to a teaching exercise used to convince the public, rather than an opportunity to elicit debate. Secondly, in both countries, local authorities characterised the imagined public as NIMBY and used this imaginary to legitimise the decision-making process and its outcomes. Finally, the participatory practices implemented in the two countries highlighted the potential links between lack of opportunities for direct communication between the public and decision-makers and alternative channels of expression. The knowledge generated from the present research contributes significantly to an understanding of public participation from both a theoretical and practical perspective and expands the discourse beyond the classical normative divide between technocratic and participatory decision-making processes.

Book Description :

As services provided by government have expanded over the past several decades, so inevitably, has bureaucracy--especially the corps of professional administrators in charge of programs ranging from health care to the maintenance of efficient transportation networks. Under pressure from reform groups to promote public accountability by involving citizens in the decision-making process, government has begun to place private citizens on many important health, education, transportation, and environmental planning bodies. This study of citizen participation and technocracy, written by twelve prominent specialists, provides the first comprehensive theoretical and empirical analyses of these recent developments and their impact on formulating, directing, and implementing public policies.
