Abstract [en]

This chapter study a 1980s ecotopia of a decentralized renewable energy system and how it was intertwined with overall energy and environmental politics. In 1980 a change was on its way but transition was delayed, a development congruent with the hegemonic shift in energy and environmental politics to ecomodern discourse.
