Situated strategies for assembling transitions – Case studies of District Heating Utilities in Denmark

Project Details


I look into the transformations undertaken by Danish district heating (DH) utilities for being CO2 neutral.

Grounded in social science of energy, I investigate how new modes of production and distribution of heat are being implemented by different District Heating utilities, and how these different mechanisms are reconfiguring the roles attributed to both utilities and their customers.

I explore the diversity of the transformations triggered by a low-carbon future. I investigate how the peculiar and situated elements of the utilities' environment provokes specific types of transformation.
