Håkon Endresen Normann
In my research, I focus on the role of politics in sustainability transitions and the relationship between established and new industries in energy transitions. I am currently involved in two research projects at TIK:
RENEWGROWTH (2017-2021) will study conditions for growth in Norwegian renewable energy industries linked to the opportunities presented by rapid development in international markets. The empirical focus of the project is on offshore wind and solar PV. My contribution to the project will focus particularly on the relations between established and new industries, policy, and political conditions for policies that support energy transitions.
CenSES is a national research centre for environmentally friendly energy (FME Community). I contribute to research areas related to policy-making and innovation. My current work within the centre focuses on politics, policy and the role of established industries in sustainability transitions.
I defended my PhD on Politics in energy system transformation. Conditions for the development of an offshore wind industry in Norway at the University of Oslo in 2017. Articles completed as part of my PhD are published in Technological forecasting & social change, Environmental Innovation and Societal Transitions, and Industry and Innovation.
