7 3. The Danish case vs. the US case

8 The Danish case vital entrepreneurial network vital entrepreneurial network energy crisis 1973 energy crisis 1973 grass-roots movement grass-roots movement development of ‘meaning’ development of ‘meaning’  Bottom-up and Top-down strategy

9 The US case compete with already existing power plants compete with already existing power plants energy crisis 1973 energy crisis 1973 ‘Big Science’ heavily funded from the State ‘Big Science’ heavily funded from the State knowledge from aerodynamics knowledge from aerodynamics  Top-down strategy

10 4. Conclusion

11 Conclusion from grass-roots to ‘Big Industry’ from grass-roots to ‘Big Industry’ external factors played a crucial role external factors played a crucial role different meanings to technology different meanings to technology
