Abstract:In the literature on the potential of reducing householder’s consumption of electrical energy; two interpretations can be discerned. On the one hand a technologist’s view that technological change will do the work; on the other a sociologist’s view that practice is at the heart of the matter. I argue that both views are important for our understanding; but at the same time reductionist. In this article I will discuss this based on studies of the use of electrical equipment among households in Sweden.
