Department of Economic History
Abstract (Swedish)
The main aim of this thesis is to explain the differences in the resources used for electricity generation in the Czech Republic and Austria from two different perspectives: geographical and institutional. First, geographical conditions and available domestic resources are compared, followed by an analysis of energy policy in both countries. The institutional perspective concentrates on the concept of path dependence and its presence or absence in the development of electricity generation in the chosen countries. Concerning energy, the case of electricity is a good illustration of government’s strategy towards renewable resources and nuclear power that differs significantly in Austria and the Czech Republic.
