The transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. Landscape and Energy is a ground-breaking book about the effect of this transition on our environment. This book is the first to visually compare the spatial footprints of all relevant energy sources; it explains the driving forces behind the exponential growth of our use of energy and sketches the breath-taking task that lies ahead for spatial designers, planners and politicians.
The options and choices for an emerging ‘post-fossil landscape’ are elaborated in a wide variety of case study designs. After all, energy is relevant at every scale and all levels of abstraction, from global political strategies to the solar panel on the roof. The challenges receive due attention in a series of essays on the energy market, the role of politics, the psychology of transition, and technical developments and constraints. Ultimately, the transition from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy proves to be much more than a technical task for professionals. On closer consideration, the energy transition above all is acultural task that affects everyone.
