Description

This book is the first attempt to provide a comprehensive volume on the topic of energy geography. The book reviews research on energy geography, contain~ original refereed articles on energy and provides a chapter on future research directions in this subfield of geography. The book provides an overview of the research activity underway, and highlights the role of geographers and regional scientists in the study of energy topics. A diverse group of scholars contribute to the manuscript and the chapters show how di fferent research methodologies and approaches are employed in investigating a range of relevant energy problems. This book is intended for upper-level undergraduate students and graduate students in geography, regional science and related disciplines. It will also be useful to professional geographers who would like to know more about the energy geography subfield. Furthermore, the chapters will be interesting to applied geographers and energy policymakers who can see the value of the spatial perspective in addressing energy problems.
