    Är barns bilder språk?1991Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    "Är barns bilder språk?" Det traditionella språkbegreppet har ändrat karaktär. Begrepp tenderar att bli utslitna - så även begreppet "språk". Bildspråk är en av byggstenarna i vår kommunikation.

    I denna bok presenteras en bildpedagogisk metod för barn i åldrarna 2-7 år. Författaren delar med sig av sina egna bildpedagogiska erfarenheter. Med många exempel i ord och bild visar hon hur en bildspråklig medvetenhet kan utvecklas hos barn. Inte minst framgår hur roligt barnen ofta tycker det är att prata om sina bilder, i synnerhet när de vuxna själva har utvecklat sitt bildkunnande. Här behandlas sådant som färgblandning, modellteckning och diktillustrering. Bildanalys pekar på vad som kan upptäckas i barnens bilder. Här finns dessutom en översikt över bildpedagogikens historia och dess olika teorier.

    Den välillustrerade boken ger en utmärkt grund för pedagoger - och föräldrar - som vill stimulera barnen att uttrycka sig i bild.

    Forecasting Cellular Mobile Traffic: An Econometric Approach2006Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We consider the problem of explaining and forecasting the volume of cellular mobile traffic in a long-term perspective. To this end, we create a model of a market with both economic and non-economic variables, viz. the state of the economy, the current price level and the penetration effect on the market in question. We measure these variables by using publicly available data and by applying income theories and by combining theories of demand and technology diffusion. Applying the model to three markets, viz. China, Italy and Sweden, we show that it performs very well in explaining and predicting the volume of cellular mobile traffic. Noting the qualitative differences between these markets, we conclude that the model has some universality in that the results are comparable for all of them

    Simple and Accurate Forecasting of the Market for Cellular Mobile Services2007In: Managing Traffic Performance in Converged Networks, Berlin: Springer , 2007Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We consider the problems of explaining and forecasting the penetration and the traffic in cellular mobile networks. To this end, we create two regression models, viz. one to predict the penetration from service charges and network effects and another one to predict the traffic from service charges and diffusion and adoption effects. The results of the models can also be combined to compute the likely evolutions of essential characteristics such as Minutes of Use (MoU), Average Revenue per User (ARPU) and total revenue. Applying the models to 26 markets throughout the world we show that they perform very well. Noting the significant qualitative differences between these markets, we conclude that the model has some universality in that the results are comparable for all of them.

    The use of three perspectives to make energy implementation studies more culturally informed2014In: Energy, Sustainability and Society, ISSN 2192-0567, Vol. 4, no 3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In our research on the social and technical feasibility of a small-scale electrical power system in Tanzania, we have perceived a need for an alternative framework or method for social scientific studies of limited scope. The approach we suggest is also a response to the growing criticism of cultural ignorance with which many energy implementation projects are handled. Theories from Social Anthropology and Sociology form the core of the approach we present. In addition, concepts from Science and Technology studies are used, as well as lessons learned from History of Technology. We suggest that particular attention should be paid to three aspects: identification of social actors, perceptions of change, and long-term feasibility and sustainability. The approach has been developed and concretised through application in our research. To elucidate our suggested approach, we use examples and results from our ongoing research project, in which the 'Three-perspectives-approach' is currently applied. We have combined theories, approaches and knowledge from different disciplines in order to formulate a framework for studies of social aspects of energy projects that is structured, concise and comparable. The approach is developed to target multi-disciplinary researchers with limited training in social scientific research. It may also be used by project implementers, or as a way for social scientists to present their findings in a way that facilitates for non-social scientists to integrate them into practice. We suggest that the Three-perspectives-approach may be applied independently, os as a complement to other tools.

    When Product Managers Gamble with Requirements: Attitudes to Value and Risk2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Context and motivation: Finding a balance between commercial (customer specific, market pull and external quality requirements) and internal quality requirements is a recognized challenge in market driven software product development (MDSPD). In order to address this challenge it is important to understand the preferences and biases influencing decision makers selecting requirements for software releases. Question/problem: Prospect theory has been successfully applied to many disciplines. Applying it to MDSPD suggests decision makers will avoid risk when selecting between commercial requirements, take risk with internal quality requirements, and prefer commercial requirements over internal quality requirements in order to maximize their perceived value. This paper seeks to investigate this claim. Principal ideas/results: This paper presents an experiment investigating whether the biases proposed by prospect theory can be seen operating in MDSPD requirements engineering (RE). The results indicate risk avoidance when dealing commercial requirements, while greater risk is taken when dealing with internal quality requirements. Contribution: As this is the first paper to use prospect theory to explain requirements selection decisions, it presents opportunity to educate people in the biases they bring to the RE process, and facilitate the creation of strategies for balancing the different requirements types.

    Cooperative Compliance in Sweden: A Question of Legality2019In: Journal of Tax Administration, ISSN 2059-190X, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 6-25Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to emphasise the importance of recognising the legal framework within which a cooperative compliance programme is to operate. This is done through the example of the Swedish cooperative compliance model, fordjupad dialog ("in-depth dialogue"), which has been described as somewhat of a failure by representatives from both academia and business. In this paper, the author points to certain legal issues that may explain why the Swedish cooperative compliance programme has not been a success. The focus is the principle of legality, laid down in Swedish constitutional law, which requires a legal basis in the law for public agency activities. The lack of legal basis has been a central part of the criticism concerning fordjupad dialog. The Swedish Tax Agency argues that there is a legal basis for fordjupad dialog, through the so-called service obligation provision in Section 6 of the Administrative Procedure Act of 2017. The author argues that, on the contrary, fordjupad dialog does not constitute a form of service under this Act. This conclusion is based on, inter alia, an analysis of the scope of the term "service". Therefore, fordjupad dialog lacks legal basis. Since it has not been possible to find another provision laid down in the law that may constitute such a legal basis, it is the author's conclusion that the constitutional principle of legality has not been met. Thus, the criticism concerning the fact that fordjupad dialog lacks legal basis still stands.

    Fördjupad dialog: En studie av Skatteverkets arbetsform fördjupad dialog ur ett svenskt offentligrättsligt perspektiv2018Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I syfte att motverka aggressiv skatteplanering har, under det senaste decenniet, arbetsmodeller baserade på OECD:s co-operative compliance införts i skatteförvaltningars verksamhet i flertalet länder världen över. År 2011 introducerades arbetsformen i Sverige av Skatteverket genom fördjupad samverkan, som sedan år 2014 går under benämningen fördjupad dialog.

    I den här boken analyseras fördjupad dialog ur ett svenskt offentligrättsligt perspektiv. Inledningsvis görs en förvaltningsrättslig undersökning av hur fördjupad dialog kan kategoriseras - är det faktiskt handlande, ärendehandläggning eller myndighetsutövning? Därefter utreds om fördjupad dialog kan anses utgöra en del av den i förvaltningslagen lagstadgade serviceskyldigheten.

    I bokens fortsatta del analyseras fördjupad dialog utifrån de för svenska förvaltningsmyndigheter grundläggande principerna legalitetsprincipen, likhetsprincipen och offentlighetsprincipen. Vad gäller legalitetsprincipen undersöks försjupad dialog i förhållande dels till dess föreskriftskrav och dels utifrån frågan om normgivnignskompetens. Undersökningen avseende likhetsprincipen omfattar frågan om fördjupad dialog innebär olikbehandling och om sådan olikbehandling kan anses sakligt motiverad. Vad gäller offentlighetsprincipen är fokus för analysen sekretesskyddet för de uppgifter som förekommer i fördjupad dialog.

    Tax Confidentiality: A Legislative Proposal at National Level2017In: World Tax Journal, ISSN 1878-4917, E-ISSN 2352-9237, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 163-188Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with national legislation concerning tax confidentiality in terms of public access to information on individual taxpayers held by national tax authorities. It ends in a proposal for legislation – a requirement of damage, which is to be applied when individuals request tax information about other taxpayers held by the tax administration. In short, the requirement of damage is constructed so that, for confidentiality to apply, there must in the particular case be a likelihood of damage occurring upon disclosure. A tax confidentiality rule holding a requirement of damage thus provides neither total confidentiality nor full transparency. Instead, it provides a case-by-case balancing of interests – a damage assessment – to determine whether the requested information should be confidential or could be disclosed. This means that all of the requested information may be subject to possible disclosure, limiting the information decided beforehand to be confidential, thus widening the scope of transparency and the right to information. Tax confidentiality – or tax transparency – and the proposed requirement of damage are considered from different viewpoints, such as the principle of maximum disclosure, the scope of accessibility and the scope of accessible information. Furthermore, the article evaluates the proposal with the use of a theoretical framework holding three different benchmarks: tax compliance, administrative costs for the tax administration and taxpayer privacy. It is argued that a requirement of damage facilitates public access to information and thus should provide benefits in terms of the level of taxpayer compliance, but at the same time recognizes that full disclosure in every situation may not be appropriate due to, for instance, the interest of protecting taxpayer privacy.

    Förstudie Priselasticitet2004Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Rapporten visar att det finns två faktorer som begränsar konkurrensen för den operation som krävs för att ta betalt för mobila tjänster. Den ena faktorn är att betaloperationen kräver information om vem som ska betala och hur mycket. Rådata till denna information kommer från mobiloperatörens nät och är alltså en unik och samtidigt nödvändig resurs för att hantera betalningen, med undantag för de fall när betalningen görs i förväg. Den andra faktorn är att den som först lyckas uppnå stordriftsfördelar i betaloperationen kan ef-fektivt hindra andra aktörer från att träda in på marknaden. Stordriftsförde-larna är extra viktiga när de mobila tjänsterna är så enkla och köps så sällan att priserna bir låga och betalningarna extremt små, s.k. mikrobetalningar. Det är möjligt att morgondagens mobila tjänster inte kommer att kräva mik-robetalningar och då minskar effekten av den faktor som har att göra med stordriftsfördelar. Samtidigt visar mobiloperatörer och banker ett stort intres-se av att skaffa sig ännu större konkurrensfördelar på marknaden för mikro-betalningar med nya system för att använda mobiltelefonen som betalnings-terminal.

    Bronze, Silver and Gold: Effective Membership Design in Customer Rewards Programs2008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many companies use rewards programs to create so called “loyal” customers. Information Technology (IT) has made it possible to design such incentive programs with in principle endless variations at a low cost. It means that the company can, with the use of IT, offer non-linear incentives that create “loyal” customers more effectively than linear ones. Internet has also reduced the cost for the customer to search and compare products and services like air flights, hotels etc. In such a competitive context, the company can use the programs to gain an advantage with a differentiated offer to the customer and to create lock-in effects still at a low IT cost. Field observations show surprisingly that programs look very much alike and do not present as much variation as could be expected. Of special interest in this paper is the fact that companies typically offer three, or less, membership levels to increase the incentive for the customer to spend money at the company. These three levels come in different versions like, for example, “Bronze”, “Silver” and “Gold” or with similar labels. The reward to the customer is generally associated and accelerated with membership level. In this paper, we analyze the consequences of using membership levels as a way to create both competitive differentiation and effective customer incentives. We suggest a model for understanding how the consumer decides on spending at a company that offers a reward program with different membership levels. The decision setting for the customer is described as a risky contract with a risky time-state-contingent claim. The contract is risky since the terms and conditions for membership can be altered by the company, without any legal penalties. The claim is risky since it is uncertain to the customer whether the state required for the membership will be achieved. We show with the help of this model that the present use of a small number of membership levels could be questioned as the most effective incentive mechanism.

    Innovation for future mobile services2003Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The mobile telecom industry has developed a substantial amount of mobile services that have attracted few end-users. The new mobile telephony systems will offer even more possibilities to develop mobile services, and frequent use of mobile services is necessary to warrant the high investment cost in those systems. But how do we then meet users and their needs with continued development of mobile services and prod-ucts? In this project we have started a work to find new ways to identify and screen new possible mobile services. The approach is based on ethnographic studies and economic modeling of everyday work. The project has resulted in a “prototype” method where Work Practice studies are combined with a fairly simple economical screening model. In a pilot study like this it is not possible to solve the fundamental problems of the mobile industry, but it could be seen as a beginning of a work of reconnaissance. We have identified some exciting possibilities, but also some considerable problems. In or-der to be successful, the innovation process needs to be accompanied by a parallel de-velopment of new business models that supports the development of services that ad-dresses the end-users needs. There is also a need for research to understand how inno-vations from “outside” are received and processed in organizations and together with industry increase the effectiveness of the whole innovation process. This pilot study has produced valuable experiences for a continued work. The pro-ject have also resulted in a long list of suggestions for new or refined mobile services. Most of the suggestions could be seen as derivatives of existing services. In one way you could therefore question the “innovation effectiveness” of the method. But the used methods could be seen as a starting point for further development in order to address the question of how to organize environments and processes for real innovation.

    Ambience'11 Exhibition2011Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In art and design practices, materials and technology are means of expression as well as sources of inspiration. On the other hand, in technical development processes art and design provide meaning, direction and expressions of functionality. In some sense this duality of perspectives is what defines the loci where art, design and technology meet. Over the past ten years, the Swedish School of Textiles have taken part in the ongoing discussion on how practice-based research can further develop our understanding of the expressiveness inherent in new materials and new technology. In this context it is clear that art, design and technology meet in the lab and in the workshop. However, for discussions across borders between the perspectives of art, design and technology we need meeting places outside of the labs and the workshops as well. The Ambience exhibition is an exercise in building such a meeting place, but also an exercise in providing conference space for interaction between artistic practice and theory. As designers and artists working within a research setting, we often work in parallel with writing, presenting conference papers and exhibiting in different arenas. It is then only natural to include two ways of presenting results at a conference for artistic research; to let paper presentations and exhibition interact to create wider perspectives and deeper understanding. All exhibition contributions have been subject to a peer review process similar to the review process paper submissions are subjected to. And just as for paper submissions, reviews focus on originality and skills with respect to both results and presentation. This exhibition is the first in the series of Ambience conferences. The conference is organized by the University of Borås in cooperation with Tampere University of Technology and is a part of the Smart Textiles Initiative – www.smarttextiles.se In this catalogue you will find images, artist statements and/or project descriptions presenting the works displayed at the exhibition.

    Ambiguous Artefacts: Solar Collectors in Swedish Contexts. On Processes of Cultural Modification2000Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This is a book about solar collectors and the place of these artefacts in a political energy debate that has aroused strong feelings in Sweden during the last twenty-five years. It is a book about the hopes for a less polluted earth, which solar collectors have come to symbolise, and a book about the ways in which problems in utilising solar energy are culturally perceived. One main aims of this study has been to find out more about the conflicting perceptions of solar collectors as 'saviours of the world' and simultaneously as uninteresting or less credible artefacts that 'may come in the future'. Another main purpose of the study has been to describe and explain those cultural processes of modification that are taking place around solar collectors in active attempts to integrate these into established cultural structures.

    Can qualitative methods support the development of more flexible and energy saving thermal comfort?2006In: Comfort and energy use in buildings - getting them right, Windsor, UK, 2006Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper uses examples from a Swedish study to suggest some ways in which cultural variation could be included in studies of thermal comfort. It is shown how only a slight shift of focus and methodological approach could help us discover aspects of human life that add to previous knowledge within comfort research of how human beings perceive and handle warmth and cold. It is concluded that it is not enough for buildings, heating systems and thermal control devices to be energy-efficient in a mere technical sense. If these are to help to decrease, rather than to increase, energy consumption, they have to support those parts of already existing habits and modes of thought that have the potential for low energy use. This is one reason why culture-specific features and emotional cores need to be investigated and deployed into the study and development of thermal comfort.

    Climate change and energy use: The role for anthropological research2005In: Anthropology Today, ISSN 0268-540X, E-ISSN 1467-8322, Vol. Vol. 21, no 3, no JuneArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The expression 'global climate change' no longer designates merely a discourse on possible future risks; today it us used as a shorthand for specific ongoing events that are having a serious impact on the lives of people around the world. In the light of this change and consequent efforts to limit carbon dioxide emissions, contributions from social scientists are increasingly in demand within the study of energy use. My concern here is not whether intervention is a proper role for anthropologists, but rather how we may position ourselves within energy- and climate-related research.

    Creating Prestige and Global Networks through Conference Rituals2008In: Business Bodies: Body and Movement in the Global Economy, Helsingfors, 2008Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    An international conference is a secular ritual which serves to create, recreate and shape global-wide translocal cultural sharings. Social anthropological theories and methods are used to show that, besides being an information flow junction, the international conference is a network crossroad and a way of socialising new members into aninternational research community. It is also capable of creating prestige and honour for the individual researcher,for the arranging research team, university and city. Rituals do not merely reflect the social relations or cosmology of a society, but are events that in themselves do important things through ritual forms and symbolic statements.

    Decisions with Impact on Energy Reduction Opportunities: Swedish manufacturers and buyers of new single-family houses2009In: the Americal Anthropological Association 108th Annual Meeting, Philadelphia, USA, 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses some of the complexities of human decision-making. It aims, in particular, at relating the nature of decision-making to the illusory dichotomies of change and stability, individual actions and cultural sharing. Serving as an illustration to the discussion of the article is ongoing fieldwork in contexts of buying, selling and constructing pre-fabricated detached houses in the central Sweden, and the very specific question of how decisions to install one kind of heating-system rather than another come about. A common reductionism is to narrow down the understanding of decisions about heating systems and energy consumption to conscious choices made by individual householders. I have asked myself whether, on the contrary, anyone actually makes such decisions at all. Perhaps some of these decisions are merely outcomes of interaction between different individuals with their respective responsibilities and focuses of interest.

    Equal Couples in Equal Houses: Cultural perspectives on Swedish solar and bio-pellet heating design2005In: Sustainable Architectures: Cultures and Natures in Europe and North America / [ed] Guy, S; Moore, S, Spon Press , 2005Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Knowing how to design a heating system that will work mechanically is quite different from knowling how to design a system that users perceive as responsive to their domestic practices and values. In this chapter, social anthropologist Henning argues that the challenge for designers involved in the development or marketing of green buildings with heating systems that are based on renewable sources of energy is to see things from the perspective of those who are supposed to live in these buildings. The chapter focuses on three culture-specific aspects of Swedish households and single-family houses: perceptions of house and home, of private and public space, and of male and female space. Through these three angles, some clues are given as to how design, performance and location of solar and bio-pellet heating systems could be made to resonate with predominant experiences, habits and ways of thinking among both men and women.

    Abstract [en]

    What is the prospect of reaching the Swedish national target of reducing energy for heating by 20 percent to the year 2020? This paper discusses the nature of, and link between, individual decision-making and structural change. Examples are taken from a field study focused on the buying and selling of heating systems and single-family houses.

    Husköpares val av värmesystem: Hinder och möjligheter2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med det tvärvetenskapliga projekt som denna forskning har ingått i, har varit att studera hinder och möjligheter för boende i småhus att börja utnyttja energi för uppvärmning på ett sätt som sparar resurser och minskar påverkan på klimatet. Projektet har fokuserat på två beslutssituationer i småhusägares liv. Den situation som presenteras här rör val av värmesystem i samband med köp av prefabricerade småhus. Småhusägares långsiktiga möjligheter att skaffa sig resurssnål och energieffektiv uppvärmning är intimt förknippad med både värmesystemets och byggnadens utformning, men även med andra aktörers uppfattningar om vad som är möjligt. Ett välplacerat hus med hög isolerstandard och utrymme för ackumulatortank ger till exempel stora möjligheter att dessutom skära ner på den inköpta energin med hjälp av solvärme. Ett rimligt stort solvärmesystem kan då uppnå femtio procent solvärmeandel på årsbasis utan att värmen lagras från sommar till vinter. De monteringsfärdiga husens fysiska form är dock noggrant planerad och förberedd långt innan husen byggs. Även små ändringar i hustillverkarnas ordersystem eller tillverkningsprocess kan därför få stora konsekvenser för företagen i termer av tid och pengar. Köpare och säljare bygger till stor del sina värmebeslut på antaganden och gissningar om varandra. Blivande husägare har mängder av beslut att fatta inför och under byggperioden. De tenderar därför att acceptera säljarens förslag på värmesystem. Dessa husförsäljare är anställda som egna konsulter och därmed beroende av att föreslå standardlösningar som har fungerat väl tidigare. Företagsledningarna, å sin sida, försöker uppskatta kommande trender i presumtiva husköpares smak och önskemål. Cirkeln sluts och alternativ till el och värmepump får svårt att ta sig in. De strängare energikraven i den senaste BBR-revideringen (Boverket 2008, 2009) tycks inte förändra denna situation nämnvärt. Både energitekniska beräkningar och intervjuer med småhustillverkare i Dalarna tyder på att de nya byggreglerna framförallt leder till en förbättring av värmepumpars effektivitet. Förbättrad isoleringsstandard och övergång från el till andra energibärare och energislag påverkas således marginellt av de nya direktiven. Studien ger exempel på hur kommunikation ofta fungerar sämre mellan individer från olika kulturella gemenskaper (såsom yrkesgemenskaper) än inom varje sådan gemenskap, och att det kan också vara svårt att nå fram till en lösning som alla är nöjda med när flera perspektiv möts. Vi visar hur det samtidigt ofta är just sådana möten, diskussioner och förhandlingar som pressar fram, eller inspirerar till, mindre eller större modifieringar av människors kunskap och tankesätt, företagens arbetssätt eller bostädernas utformning.

    In Bio-Fuel We Trust2006In: Biomass and Bioenergy: New Research / [ed] Brenes, M.D., New York: Nova Science Publishers , 2006, p. 125-140Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In bio-fuel we trust. Or do we? In this chapter, ethnographic material from Sweden is used to discuss ways sin which trust may influence the choice of bio-fuel for heating purposes. The meaning and substance of trust or distrust, as well as the very conditions for trust, are elaborated on in relation to solar and bio-pellet systems, district heating with bio-fuel, and traditional fireplaces. An important conclusion of this chapter is that the degree to which people perceive others as being like themselves or not tends to be decisive for whether these others are to be trusted, and therefore worth listening to. The context and situation in which a certain heating system is being chosen does not only involve trust in individuals, however, but in companies and the authorities, as well as in the arterfacts themselves. An example is given on how distrust of district heating companies led house owners to reject an offer of district heating despite the comfort and environmental benefit this could have provided. it is shown how this distrust might be resolved by making the rhythm of households and sitrict heating companies more in step with one another. The strong emotional attachment to and deep-felt trust in the traditional fireplace is also analysed, and a question is put forward as to whether these feelings could be transferred to modern bio-pellet stoves. Finally, our great and assured trust in bio-fuel as a main solution to global climate change is shortly commented upon and partly questioned.

    Indoor climate agreements in energy-efficiency and renovation projects - a question of justice?2018In: Proceedings of the Ises Eurosun 2018 Conference - 12th International Conference on Solar Energy for Buildings and Industry / [ed] Haberle A, 2018, p. 1694-1703Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the global dilemmas of our time is the urgent need to reduce energy demand in some parts of the world and at the same time manage to increase and improve energy services in others. This paper calls attention to the importance of also recognizing local energy dilemmas and pockets of more vulnerable groups in energy efficiency and building renovation projects. Interviews with tenants in a Swedish ‘million-program’ housing area are used to illustrate the arguments in the paper. Results show essential variations in male and female thermal sensation. They also show little compatibility between the tenants’ wishes for a comfortable home and the housing company’s energy saving ambitions. The paper argues that the use of generalized indoor climate agreements needs to be taken less for granted and complemented with qualitative investigations of all main actors in a specific local context. Only then can possible disparities become evident, and alternative, more just, solutions be worked out.

    Klimatsmart villavärme?: Solvärme, nya byggregler och möjligheten att förändra2010Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Är vi på väg mot klimatsmartare, resurssnålare och flexiblare uppvärmning av nybyggda småhus? Denna fråga ställer sig fem forskare vid Centrum för solenergiforskning SERC. En socialantropolog, en statsvetare och tre energiteknikforskare beskriver här tillsammans dagsläget, samt pekar på möjligheter och svårigheter med att åstadkomma en förändring i denna riktning. Den senaste revideringen av Boverkets byggregler uppmärksammas särskilt, liksom möjligheten att utnyttja solfångare och ackumulatortank för att reducera mängden inköpt primärenergi samtidigt som man bevarar de boendes valfrihet.

    Abstract [sv]

    Många nya småhus byggs idag utan pannrum. Det begränsar framförallt kvinnors trygghet och handlingsutrymme. Dessutom hindras hushållen från att minska sin förbrukning av energiresurser. Men vems är felet?

    Making Energy Interventions more Effective: Situation, Interaction, and Precondition2015In: International Journal of Humanities and Social Science, ISSN 2220-8488, E-ISSN 2221-0989, Vol. 5, no 9, p. 46-54Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A main purpose of this paper is to propose to policy makers, building professionals, and other non-social scientists a way to make energy interventions more culturally informed and, thereby, more effective. The case study on house purchasers gives an ample illustration of the richer results that can be achieved by paying attention to three aspects of energy efficiency initiatives: the contexts and situations of choice in each particular case, the interaction among relevant social actors, and the culture-specific preconditions for choice. Research on how purchasers of new pre-fabricated houses in Sweden choose their heating system show how such decisions tend to fall between two stools. Furthermore, the organizational structure of housing companies frames house purchasers' decision making. An important result is that energy saving or conversion measures must be promoted at an early stage amongst those who plan and construct buildings (rather than later amongst dwellers and energy end users).

    Måste vi byta livsstil?2007In: Byggnadskultur, ISSN 0348-6885, Vol. 07, no 1Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ett tungt ansvar för klimatförändringarna läggs ofta på de boende. Människor borde "byta livsstil", sägs det. Men förändring sker sällan så abrupt, menar Annette Henning. Istället borde yrkesgrupper som sysslar med bostäder, värmesystem eller inomhusklimat medvetet stödja de vanor som kan leda oss i en energisnål riktning.

    Socialantropologiska teorier applicerbara på solenergiteknik: Del 2 Diskussion av mikro- och makroperspektiv1996Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna skrift färdigställdes i augusti -96. De metoder som redogörs för i rapporten har använts i ett socialantropologiskt translokalt fältarbete som pågått periodvis under loppet av en fyraårsperiod. Dessa metoder, liksom de teorier som tas upp här, är utvalda för att användas i en kommande doktorsavhandling om försöken att integrera solenergiteknik i det svenska samhället (Solenergiteknik diskuteras emellertid inte explicit i denna rapport. För en närmare redogörelse av det pågående avhandlingsarbetet se Socialantropologisk studie av solenergiteknikers införande i Sverige. Projektpresentation oktober 1995, arbetshandling SERC). Jag förespråkar i rapporten en användning av begreppen nätverk och process som metod- och analysredskap. Jag för också fram en kulturteori som utgör en samlad syn på de teoretiska begreppen kultur, struktur och process. Dikotomin mellan individ och samhälle försvagas här kraftigt, både genom mitt sätt att använda kulturbegreppet och genom min användning av begreppet struktur .Denna kulturteori inbegriper såväl idémässiga, sociala som materiella förhållanden och är samtidigt en teori om förändring. Jag framför här också ett förslag till två lämpliga målsättningar för att föra socialantropologiska mikro- och makroperspektiv närmare varandra. Den ena målsättningen innebär att man vid teoretiska mer generaliserande beskrivningar av förhållanden i världen bör sträva mot att uttrycka sig så att dessa beskrivningar också blir applicerbara på specifika fältarbeten. Detta innebär både att de begrepp som används ska vara bra redskap att tänka med för antropologen i fält, och att de makroteoretiska resonemang som förs i allt högre utsträckning bygger på fältarbeten som på varierande sätt inkluderar globala skeenden. Den andra målsättningen gäller fältarbetet och beskrivningen av detta. Här menar jag att också fältarbeten behöver planeras, utföras och presenteras så att sådana fältarbeten tillsammans kan ingå i det makroantropologiska projektet att skapa underlag för makroteorier om förhållanden i världen. Min avsikt är att i mitt eget avhandlingsarbete använda mig av teoretiska begrepp och metodologiska tillvägagångssätt som överensstämmer med dessa två målsättningar.

    Solar Collectors for Historic Homes: Linking consumption to perceptions of space2013In: Making Sense of Consumption: Selections from the 2nd Nordic Conference on Consumer Research 2012 / [ed] Hansson, L., Holmberg, U., Brembeck, H., Göteborg: Centre for Consumer Science , 2013, p. 349-366Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Reduction of household energy consumption is one of the top issues in contemporary discussions on sustainable consumption. This chapter concerns one way through which consumption of purchased energy for house heating can be reduced; by having a solar thermal system added to one's house. However, the fact that one of the components - the solar collector - usually is situated on the roof or the facade of a building, is a recurrent impediment to such installations. In certain contexts, these attributes may melt into the building, while in others, they may be perceived as problematic. The latter may particularly be the case when the appearance of the building is of major imiportance, as with houses deemed worthy of preservation for coming generations. This chapter draws upon a study carried out in Visby Town, a walled Hanseatic town and a World Heritage site on the island of Gotland, Sweden.

    Solar collectors in a roof landscape: Balancing change and preservation in a world heritage site2012In: Energy Efficiency in Historic Buildings: Postprints from the conference: Visby, February 9 - 11, 2011 / [ed] Broström, Tor (Högskolan på Gotland, Institutionen för kultur, energi och miljö), Nilsen, Lisa, Visby, 2012, p. 151-163Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Social anthropological theories and methods have been used to study varying views on the appropriateness of placing solar collectors on istoric buildings. A basic purpose is to contribute to increased knowledge on how the two national interests, preservation of historic buildings and promotion of energy efficiency, could both be met. The research involved a case study with observations and qualitative interviews in Visby, Sweden. Varying ways of balancing change and preservation depend on professional training, on the history and construction of each specific house, and on perceptions of aesthetics and a convenient home. They also depend on a buildings- educational and illustrative power as well as to its function as a dwelling. The discussion links the differing opinions on solar collectors and buildings to vague or overlapping boundaries between private and public space, in terms of geography as well as ownership, responsibility and statutory power.
