Green transition through dynamics of problematizations: How forms of expertise influence the financial and social valuation of energy resources in Denmark


This project advances our understanding of green transitions, by examining whatwe call “dynamics of problematization”, which describes the interplay and tensionsof modes of expertise that inform the social and financial valuation of energyresources in the governance of energy transition. The research contributes totransition studies by drawing upon recent developments within the intersectionbetween the sociology of knowledge and the social studies of valuation. It studieshow expertise, understood as ideas, models and calculative tools, from differentscientific domains (i.e. economics, natural science) shape governance thatconstitute the valuation of energy resources. The project also explores newalternative metrics for valuation. The focus is on gas, wind, and biomass, centralresources in the green transition. The energy resources are studied historically andin the present in order to capture how the dynamics of problematizations unfold,allow learning for green transitions
