Taiwan has in recent years started a massive development of wind energy especially in the ocean - a development that to a big extent is enabled by experienced foreign businesses. Much of the wind energy technology used in Taiwan and several of the globally leading companies come from Denmark. This talk sees the development of wind energy in Taiwan in relation to the earlier development of wind energy in Denmark. The talk is particularly concerned with sociotechnical imaginaries – the technology and visions of green energy – how they travel and change across time and space.
