This, and the fact that in the years following 2001, the quota systems did not meet expectations in terms of cost-efficiency, prompted the Commission to abandon its strong preference for a quota system (Lauber, 2005). 2 Innovation systems approaches: diffusion of wind power technology Jacobsson and Johnson (2000) devised an analytical framework to study the diffusion of wind power technology, focusing on actors, networks and institutions. This innovation systems approach emphasises that the 31 formation of a new technological system is based on how competences in a new technological field develop, which involves the shaping or reshaping of networks and institutions that are supportive of the new technology.

As a policy strategy, EM took hold in Germany as early as the eighties. It proposed to decouple economic growth from pollution flows, to internalise external costs by placing a monetary value on nature, and to improve ecological and economic efficiency within the confines of the market economy (Weidner, 2005). In practice, it meant support for green industries and technologies, with the aim of creating a new market for environmental technologies (Jänicke and Weidner, 1997). g. ecotaxes), voluntary agreements between government and market actors, and eco-labelling (Jordan et al, 2003).

Ecological modernisation addresses such political processes of ecological restructuring. We will briefly discuss part of this literature, as it draws attention to the broader political-institutional context in which we want to place wind power implementation. 3 Ecological modernisation: theory, discourse, and policy Ecological modernisation (EM) theory is the result of many efforts at understanding how modern industrialised societies deal with environmental crises. It started out as an attempt to formulate options to address environmental problems without leaving the path of modernisation (Mol and Spaargaren, 2000).
