Securing triple bottom line outcomes from bioenergy innovation in rural Norway (TRIBORN)

TRIBORN studies governance of bio-energy development in rural areas. We focus primarily on Norway, but use international comparative case-studies to draw lessons from abroad. As illustrated in Figure 1, the main research question is: how should systems and strategies for bio-energy innovation be designed to promote Triple Bottom Line benefits in rural areas and to promote the achievement of national bioenergy targets?

The project thus studies how the design of innovation systems and policies affect the chances of achieving Triple Bottom Line (TBL) benefits, including the achievement of national bioenergy targets (largely focusing on Norway's 2020 target). Specifically, we will test a newly developed innovation system design (Bryden et al. 2013). This design, called the Grounded Innovation Platform (GRIP), emphasises socially embeddedness by careful inclusion of the major stakeholders from the beginning of the innovation process.

The project has several national and international partners: Norwegian Forest and Landscape Institute (NFLI); Nordregio; Energigården; CISA (Centre for Sustainable Environmental Innovation); Roskilde University; Bioforsk; Norwegian Institute for Nature Research (NINA); Swedish University of Agricultural Science (Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management); Universidade de Santiago de Compostela. Further, it has a reference group composed by: Norges bondelag, Skogeierforbundet, NOBIO, Future in our hands, FMLA Hedmark, Nordic Energy, OECD. The project also includes a PhD fellow, Bianca Cavicchi, whose research project is framed within TRIBORN. The PhD fellow will undertake a study of policy, governance and local mechanisms that lead bioenergy innovation processes towards TBL benefits in rural Norway (Oppland-Hedmark) and rural Italy (Emilia Romagna). Based on this comparison, the PhD project aims to establish guidelines for the design of bioenergy innovation systems that generate: increased energy security and flexibility, improved eco-systems and forest management, rural economic/social development and networks, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
