Project Details


with blockchain technology and the interconnector Viking Link as cases

Research question: How do power structures of energy systems (energopower) and information systems (infopower) play out as the transition from fossil to renewable, smart energy systems progresses?

-How can we conceptualize the changing power structures in the energy sector?
-What methods and what ontological and epistemological approaches are suitable to research this transition
-How do power struggles work in the physical infrastructure of the energy system in the case of Viking Link)?
-How do you power struggles play out around the use of blockchain data infrastructures in the energy sector?
-What are the energy policy implications of changing energopower structures?
-How do the ongoing struggles of decentralization and recentralization impact visions of data and energy democracy?
