Path Creation: Co-creation of Heterogeneous Resources in the Emergence of the Danish Wind Turbine Cluster

Peter Karnøe and Raghu Garud

European Planning Studies, 2012, vol. 20, issue 5, 733-752

Abstract: This paper employs path creation as a lens to follow the emergence of the Danish wind turbine cluster. Supplier competencies, regulations, user preferences and a market for wind power did not pre-exist; all had to emerge in a tranformative manner involving multiple actors and artefacts. Competencies emerged through processes and mechanisms such as co-creation that implicated multiple learning processes. The process was not an orderly linear one as emergent contingencies influenced the learning processes. An implication is that public policy to catalyse clusters cannot be based on an assumption that linear learning dynamics will unfold.
