Professor II

Erling Holden

Arbeids- og kompetanseområde

I am Professor in renewable energy at Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Engineering and Sciences. I have a master degree (1988) in mechanical engineering from the Department of Energy and Process Engineering, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). In 2002, I received a doctoral degree in urban planning at Department of Urban Design and Planning, NTNU. Since then, I have studied sociology and social psychology at the Program for Research and Documentation for a sustainable Society (ProSus), University of Oslo from 2001 to 2004. I have been visiting professor at Oxford University (2015, 2016, 2018), London University College (2014, 2015), Imperial College London (2014), and Oxford Brookes University (2005-06). I have worked with issues related to energy, transport and sustainable development since 1988. In my work, I combine one or more of three different theoretical perspectives: technological-oriented environmental studies, sociological and socio-psychological behavioural studies, and physical planning studies. Since 2008 I have also worked with projects related to renewable energy projects’ impacts on local economies, local societies, and local environments in pursuing a sustainable energy policy. My main publications are: What next for Sustainable Development? (eds) (Edward Elgar, 2019), The Imperatives of Sustainable Development (Routledge, 2017), Transport og miljø (Transport and the Environment) (Tapir, 2009), Achieving Sustainable Mobility (Ashgate, 2007), and Housing as Basis for Sustainable Consumption (PhD thesis, 2001).
