Short description

The project aims at studying organizing processes in the implementation of solar arrays on real estate, as well as to analyze potential obstacles and opportunities (organizational, technical, legal and natural) and how they are dealt with in practice. Qualitative case-study methods is used to map the involved actors, activities, actions, resources and the situational dependencies in order to carry out comparative analyses of what is done in the implementation work and why. The focus is on studying praxis, i.e. patterns of actions, and how it is influenced by material and institutional contexts. The purpose of the project is both to develop knowledge and practical contributions that can be of use for the involved study-organizations and others engaged in solar array development and implementation.
