    Abstract: The task of restoring floodplains, as a means of improving flood protection or providing other benefits, poses multi-dimensional challenges to policy-makers and project managers alike. Involving essentially a reconfiguration of the interaction between a river and adjacent low-lying land, floodplain restoration affects a wide range of institutions designed to secure a variety of private and public goods associated with water and land use. A scheme to restore a floodplain requires the successful enrolment of these institutions in such a way as to create a result acceptable to the principal stakeholders. This is a highly complex process. This paper, based on EU-funded research on the policy contexts and selected pilot schemes of floodplain restoration in Germany, France and England and Wales, provides a critical appraisal of the institutional drivers and constraints of floodplain restoration. In particular, it explores how recent shifts in problem awareness and problem-solving in a number of relevant policy fields are creating windows of opportunity for more integrated approaches to restoring floodplains. At the same time it demonstrates the emergence of a new policy delivery gap emanating from the growing complexity of new generation floodplain restoration schemes.

    Abstract: This paper makes the case for studying intermediary organisations as a window on the shifting governance of water and energy services in Europe today. It explores the notion of intermediaries and intermediation in a wide range of literatures and demonstrates how the governance concept can provide focus to the term, indicating how intermediaries can influence the pursuit of collective goals under shifting governance structures and processes. Against this conceptual backdrop the paper sets out the key governance challenges emerging from the ongoing transformation of socio-technical systems (addressing water and energy services) in terms of changing relations between the state and the utility, between service provider and user, between infrastructure and urban systems and between infrastructure and the environment. It subsequently provides empirical illustration of the emergence of intermediaries in the water sector across Europe, the relational nature of their work, the interests they pursue and the impacts they are having.

    Abstract: This paper explores the interrelationships between urban land use, resource consumption and utility service provision with a study of brownfield regeneration from an infrastructure perspective. Drawing on recent research into the spatial strategies of utility companies following liberalisation and privatisation the paper identifies disused industrial sites as “cold-spots” of infrastructure systems where energy and water consumption has recently collapsed. A case study of Berlin analyses first the challenges facing the city’s three major utilities as a result of shifting patterns of resource consumption and over-capacity in parts of their networks. The second part examines the responses of the three utilities to these challenges in the context of recent institutional changes to infrastructure provision, examining how the utilities are moving towards greater spatial differentiation in their network management and what interest they have in brownfield regeneration.

    Abstract: Studies of rainwater harvesting regularly highlight the rich diversity of technologies used to collect, treat and reuse rainwater in cities, but rarely devote attention to the equally diverse visions that drive rainwater harvesting projects. To rectify this omission this paper presents research from a city – Berlin – which has a long pedigree of rainwater harvesting that has given rise, over the past 30 years, to an astonishingly varied range of schemes. From a database of over 250 rainwater harvesting projects we select, analyse and compare three case studies which encapsulate three distinct project types prevalent in the city: public, grassroots and commercial. The paper demonstrates the nature of diversity between the three and illustrates how diverse logics of rainwater harvesting co-exist within one city. More significantly, it shows how each scheme reflects a particular imaginary of why urban rainwater should be harvested, how and for whom, and how these imaginaries have emerged out of particular institutional and infrastructural contexts in the course of Berlin’s post-reunification development. These empirical findings are interpreted using STS concepts relating to sociotechnical imaginaries, urban infrastructures in transition and institutional obduracy and change.

    Abstract: This paper summarises the main results from a study into methods of imple-menting sustainable development principles in EU Structural programmes. It demon-strates how 12 pilot regions translated the concept of sustainable development into practical applications which are compatible with structural funding procedures, rele-vant to the needs of specific programme areas and acceptable to programme partner-ships. The selected regions – from France, Germany, the UK, Sweden and the Neth-erlands – vary considerably in terms of their size and structural characteristics. These differences had an important bearing on the paths they chose to integrate sustainable development principles into their Structural Funds programmes and management practices. Conclusions are drawn on how other regions might promote sustainable devel-opment in the context of Structural Funds programmes on the basis of these experi-ences in terms of developing new methodologies, redesigning programme objectives, adapting management tools and opening up procedures to greater participation and dialogue.

    Abstract: This paper explores the unfamiliar, but increasingly prevalent problem of overcapacity in urban infrastructure systems in regions subject to dramatic socio-economic restructuring. Taking the case of water supply and wastewater disposal systems in Eastern Germany as an example, it examines firstly how infrastructure overcapacities have emerged since reunification in 1990, resulting from sharply declining water consumption in the wake of ‘shrinking’ processes but also from infrastructure expansion. Secondly, the paper analyses what impact chronic overcapacity is having on the governance of water infrastructure systems. This empirical analysis is framed conceptually in terms of the current debate on the changing relationship between infrastructures and the localities they serve. It assesses specifically how far and in what ways the phenomenon of overcapacity in technical networks resonates with the ‘splintering urbanism’ thesis developed by Stephen Graham and Simon Marvin. It argues that the serious technical and economic problems posed by overcapacity are intensifying spatial disparities in service quality and price and – more fundamentally –are challenging the supply-driven ‘modern infrastructural ideal’ of universal and equitable water services.

    Abstract: Whilst cities are widely regarded as playing a pivotal role in energy transitions, recent research is highlighting the enormous variety of urban responses. This differentiated picture of urban energy transitions is helpfully opening up the debate to the multifarious factors shaping urban energy policy. What is in danger of getting lost in these powerfully 'presentist' narratives is a sense of where these urban responses are coming from and how historical legacies of energy production and use are influencing future options. This paper uses a comparative historical analysis of two iconic 'electric cities' - Berlin and Hong Kong - to explore the legacies of past socio-technical configurations for today's attempts to realign urban energy systems. It investigates firstly, how, in response to their respective geo-political isolation prior to reunification in 1990/1997, the two cities strove to maximise local energy autarky for security reasons. The paper, secondly, demonstrates how political and economic reintegration in the 1990s has initiated a realignment of each city's energy policy, as power grids become regionalised and local generation capacity questioned. We conclude by drawing implications from these historical legacies of energy autarky and regionalisation for the cities' responses to the low carbon challenge today.

    Keywords: water–energy nexus ; Berlin-Brandenburg ; infrastructure ; Sozialwissenschaften
    Abstract: Issues of connectivity between different infrastructure sectors have received surprisingly little attention in recent research. Despite huge interest in issues of sectoral integration surrounding the water–energy nexus, researchers have rarely considered what this might mean for the coupling of infrastructure systems for water/wastewater and energy services. Consequently, the implications of greater connectivity for the governance and socio-spatial constitution of infrastructures are largely unexplored. This paper addresses this research gap with a case study of an attempt to use treated wastewater to produce biomass for energy on degraded land in the Berlin-Brandenburg region of Germany. It takes water reuse for energy crop production as an exemplar of work at the water–energy nexus in order to explore the institutional, spatial and physical dimensions involved in connecting two infrastructure systems to this end. It argues that cross-sectoral integration reaches far beyond issues of technological compatibility, revealing often hidden but crucial differences in the institutional and spatial configuration of energy and wastewater systems. On the basis of a comparative analysis of the institutional arrangements of the region’s wastewater and energy systems together with an empirical study of initiatives to use treated wastewater to grow energy crops the paper draws conclusions, firstly, on the potential and limitations of this particular exemplar and, secondly, on the broader implications of the case for understanding institutional challenges of cross-sectoral connectivity on the one hand and prospects for reconfiguring infrastructural relations between cities and rural areas on the other.

    Abstract: This paper examines the prospects for the interactive governance of water and land use following an initiative to institutionalise integrated river basin management. Taking an institutionalist perspective it first presents river basin management as a tool for overcoming problems of spatial fit and institutional interplay over water and land use. A case study of the implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive in Germany then explores opportunities and requirements for governance in future water management. On the basis of these findings the paper tests the validity of the thesis that the success of EU policy reform depends on the degree of ‘fit’ with existing institutional structures and practices.
