This report analyses how the Danish wind power has evolved from a former configuration to a new one, and aims at visualising what could be done in the future so that Danish wind power will continue to thrive.
Communities have rooted the development of wind power in the 1970s and established an important public acceptance of the technology. Nevertheless, nowadays, wind power meets a growing public resistance, which is sometimes leading to interruptions in the technological development.
The report deploys the socio-technological agencement theory in order to untangle the different configurations of the system through time. In order to grasp the intricate new stage in which the agencement is, the report uses both quantitative data in order to understand the shifts in the technology itself, and qualitative data in order to understand the consequences, and causes, of these shifts for the different actors of the configuration.
The results show that the wind turbines have massively expanded in size and capacity, which has had repercussions for the actors of the Danish wind power configuration.
The results indicate a lack of adjustment of the actors to each other due to this new materiality. Needs for greater governance, for appropriate communication between the actors, for contextualised knowledge of wind power project implementation, for active use of new calculative devices are identified.
