Making Things Valuable

The chapter follows the adoption of an administered price, a feed-in tariff, for wind power in France in 2000. Valuation in the case of the feed-in tariff unfolds around activities of knitting together distinct assemblages including entities such as competing energy technologies, electricity system management, calculations of ‘fair’ profitability, etc. A critical aspect of these assemblages is questioning the commensurability of wind power and nuclear power, their prices and profits. At the centre of these controversies, the feed-in tariff becomes more than a simple instrument for bridging political objectives with the order of market exchange; and qualifications of the governance instrument are entirely entangled with the construction of value for wind power.

Keywords:   valuation, assemblage, qualification, price, feed-in tariff, electricity, wind power
