Energy Geography – 
economic development potentials from innovation in energy systems, markets, and 
Global Conference on Economic Geography
July 24 – 28, 2018, University of Cologne
Teis Hansen (Lund University)
Fabian Faller (Kiel University)
The spatial organisation of power generation related processes is rapidly 
changing: production of energy is more and more decentralised due to renewable 
energy deployment; R&D for energy technologies is more and more decentralised, 
as various new SMEs enter the market around the world; and energy policy and 
strategies are more and more an inter- and supranational concern. Embedded in 
the western capitalist system this new energy geography is widely seen as 
growth opportunity for local and regional economies, as it supports the carbon 
decoupling of energy production, potentially allowing for sustainable 
industrial production, green mobility, as well as new regional value chains and 
energy markets. Still, we know little about the actual drivers of the new 
energy geography and its impact on economic development, including when and how 
regions may benefit in both economic and environmental terms; the relative 
importance of energy technology development and deployment activities in 
instigating economic development in different contexts; the multiple types of 
actors that may transform the opportunities offered by the new energy geography 
into economic development in various forms; and the potential deficiencies of 
ongoing transformations in the energy sector.

Against this background, the convenors of this session invite contributions 
that address energy geography in relation to emerging economic development
