Summary
This extensive Handbook captures a range of expertise and perspectives on the changing geographies and landscapes of energy production, distribution, and use. Combining established and emerging scholarship from across disciplines, the expert contributions provide a broad overview of research frontiers for the changing geographies of energy worldwide. Interdisciplinary in nature and broad in scope, it serves to answer a range of questions and provide the reader with conceptual and methodological foundations. The conversation spans the gamut from smart grids to alternative fuels, discussed in a range of settings from India to Nigeria and from Brazil to North America, highlighting the ways in which new energy technologies and consumer dynamics are changing the way people, places, and the physical world are interconnected through energy systems. In addition to a compendium of regional case studies, the Handbook identifies emerging conceptual and methodological frameworks that help us better understand energy and energy transitions. Unique in scope and breadth, this Handbook's dual purpose as a capsule for existing and emerging geographical perspectives on energy will be of immense value to students and scholars in the social sciences, environmental sciences, and humanities. Policymakers and planners will also benefit from the novel perspectives and the illuminating exploration of geographic information systems, community energy planning, and energy landscapes
