The exchange-value of solar thermal energy

Abstract [en]

In Sweden there is a tendency that alternative energy will develop on market premises. In this paper I suggest that the low exergy value of solar thermal heat limits the technique's commodification, i.e. the possibility of having a commercial exchange-value on the market. Anthropologists argue that value of a commodity has to be related to social and cultural aspect of the society where it is situated. By applying anthropological theories of value on solar thermal energy I propose that we also need to include the solar thermal energy's physical conditions to understand its potential of becoming a commodity in the society where it is supposed to produce action.
