Edited By Frank Schüssler

Die junge geographische Disziplin «Geographische Energieforschung» befindet sich im Aufwind und findet starkes öffentliches Interesse. In diesem Band werden die Resultate der dritten Jahrestagung des Arbeitskreises «Geographische Energieforschung» der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Geographie vorgelegt. Einige konzeptionelle Beiträge bilden dabei einen Schwerpunkt, darauf aufbauend folgen Artikel zu spezifischen Anwendungsbereichen und Lösungskonzepten. Alle Autoren in diesem Band eint die geographische Perspektive sowie das wissenschaftliche Interesse für das globale Megathema Energie. Gemeinsam repräsentieren die Autoren das große Spektrum der geographischen Energieforschung, innerhalb dessen jeder seine spezifischen fachlichen und regionalen Kompetenzen einbringt.

Foreword of the Editor


The Center for International Development and Environmental Research (Zent- rum für internationale Entwicklungs- und Umweltforschung, ZEU) was founded in 1998 as an interdisciplinary and interdepartmental research institute of the Justus-Liebig-University, Giessen. Presently, faculty members from the follow- ing disciplines are associated with ZEU: Agricultural and Nutritional Sciences, Economics, Environmental Safety, Geography, Law, Statistics and Economet- rics as well as Social and Cultural Sciences. Upon ZEU's foundation, the follo- wing five sections were established:  The use of natural resources and environmental preservation,  Nutrition security,  Human capacity in socio-economic systems,  Institutional foundation of regional development processes,  Transformation of economy and society. These sections also indicate the issues which research is currently focused on. A restriction of ZEU's activities to specific geographic regions is not considered. The series 'Schriften zur Internationalen Entwicklungs- und Umweltforschung' (Publications on International Development and Environmental Research) aims to present the results of ZEU's research activities and the state of discussions in the fields of our research to a broader public. The authors appreciate sugges- tions and critical remarks, in order to reconsider their own positions. The volumes of the series will appear intermittently and may be purchased in bookstores or directly from the publisher. Giessen, March 2010 Professor Dr. Thilo Marauhn Director of the Board
