Description

Landscape and Energy discusses and pictures the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy--easily one of the greatest challenges of the twenty-first century. While explaining the driving forces behind the exponential growth of our energy use, this volume also visually compares the spatial footprints of all relevant energy sources, allowing its readers to see at a glance the importance of renewable energy for our world's future. But even as Landscape and Energy acknowledges the breathtaking task that lies ahead for our designers, planners and politicians, it elaborates the options and choices for an emerging "postfossil landscape" through a variety of case studies. A series of essays on the energy market, the role of politics, the psychology of transition and technical developments demonstrates that the energy transition is not a technical, professional task, but rather a communal, cultural one.
