KAPSARC’s Human Geography of Energy (HGE) workshops provide a platform for multidisciplinary discussions on the variety of factors that shape energy markets and energy policy. More generally, the human geography (HG) approach studies the world, its people, communities; and cultures; directly linking them to place and space. The HGE workshop series narrows this focus down to how sociographic, political, economic, physical, virtual, and infrastructure factors combine to shape energy policy and markets across and within specific geographies. This approach draws on a blend of modeling, qualitative, conceptual, and field-based methods to obtain insight into complex phenomena. The workshop series will cover specific geographies, methodological innovations and advances in this area, and then generally work on applying the concept of HGE to develop policy relevant insights.
