Understanding how the development of energy landscapes (extraction, production and transport) can result in spatial inequalities in experience for communities.
Here we start to think about how the development of energy landscapes may result in spatial and social inequalities in experience.
Stable energy production is a viewed as key for economic and social goals. Countries and regions often draw upon natural resource capacity to target sites for energy production or the extraction of resources to support energy production. Sometimes these sites may be based on the extraction, transport and production of non-renewable resources, in other sites it may be through the production of renewable energy sources, such as hydro or wind power. However, while these sites and processes are deemed important for economic purposes, the development of sites of energy production, transport and generation can result in local-scale environmental change, degradation and sometimes the displacement of peoples, culture and habitats. These changes can be observed with both examples of non-renewable and renewable energy production.
In these situations we may see the benefits of the energy production being accrued elsewhere, and while there may be some local benefits through the generation of jobs there may be other the costs being potentially born by the local community. These costs may be linked to poor health outcomes or perhaps impacts on culture and social structure. In some instances, these experiences of degradation can be considered as sacrifice zones.
In this assignment, we explore how the use of resources for energy production can create unequal costs and benefits for different groups in society (human and non-human). This allows us to have better insights into the development of energy production but also the potential negative impact these activities may have at a local scale. These examples also may allow us to draw in the academic literature on social inequalities, environmental justice and sacrifice zones to better understand the implications of energy production initiatives.
We discussed different types of energy landscapes – renewable and non-renewable in lectures in Week Six, in Sue’s lecture (Nature and Place 2) and also had Rosemary Collard’s lecture on Caribou and Sacrifice Zones which prompted us to think about spatial inequalities.
The assignment will allow you to bring together an understanding of how a particular type of energy landscape may be linked to the reinforcement of spatial inequalities in experience and to explore these ideas and the geographic concepts discussed in Nature and Place in connection to a relevant example.
Using specific examples, write a short essay discussing how the production of energy can create spatially uneven outcomes in environmental and social experience for some regions. To support your discussion, you will use an example of a specific energy landscape or a specific case study to explore how the extraction, transport or production of energy can result in uneven costs and benefits for different populations.
In your essay you will need to:
Introduce your energy case study and outline the scale you are going to discuss. For example, are you focusing on a particular case study or are you looking at a number of local case studies related to a particular energy type to support your essay.
Discuss the social and environmental benefits and costs of this energy landscape at the local and regional scale.
Use the example(s) to discuss how this energy landscape can create spatially uneven outcomes in environmental and social experience for some regions.
You may choose to focus on a particular energy example (such as oil or hydro power) and discuss the inequalities using a number of site specific examples or you may wish to focus on the energy experience in a region or a particular case study. When you think about an energy landscape you may be interested in the sites of extraction of resources or the sites of production (e.g. the waste associated with energy production), or perhaps the transport of a resource used as a part of the energy cycle (e.g. pipelines).
When selecting your case study take care that you have sufficient resources to be able to write your discussion in a critical and academically robust manner. If you make your example too specific you may find limited material to support your discussion.
In this assignment we will take a wide view of energy landscapes to include a range of fossil fuel extraction processes or the extraction of components related to lithium batteries to power e-mobility. Some examples you may wish to think about include: mining of tar sands, fracking, petrochemical production, green economy developments (e.g. hydro developments).
In your discussion you should be considering some of the following concepts discussed in Knox et al. (2019) and in lectures:
Economic development and environmental protection
Human impact on the environment
Uneven spatial social and economic outcomes
Environmental and social justice
To start your organization of ideas you will have read the relevant sections of Chapter 4: People and Nature in Knox et al. (2019). This text should not be your main reference in the essay but will help you think about the core concepts that you need to discuss.
To support your discussion use material from at least three peer-reviewed academic journal articles, alongside incorporating other appropriate material. Knox et al. (2019) does not count as one of these articles.
One point to note is that when you are searching for material to support your discussion you may need to search beyond the key words ‘energy landscapes’ or ‘sacrifice zones’. There are many examples of articles that discuss local concerns related to energy development that do not specifically use these terms. If you are unsure about your example please contact our tutors through the tutor discussion board, or contact Sue. I have suggested some starter references below that may be of interest in thinking about this topic.
Please note, I have used a range of referencing formats below so you do need to make sure your referencing follows the required APA style (see details under the Format section).

The purpose of an annotated bibliography is to organize and analyze the sources you found with the goal of refining your topic and connecting some dots (comparing sources and thinking about how you’ll use sources to answer your question) before you write your paper
Step 1: Select (at least) 5 different sources of relevant information on your topic, including a mix of government, news, internet, and scholarly sources. You must use at least 1 scholarly source for this project. *You may end up using more than 5 sources in your final paper but you are only required to include 5 sources in your annotated bibliography. Your reference or works cited page for your paper should list all sources used in your research process.
Step 2: Place your research question (the question only, not the entire proposal) at the top of the document.
Step 3: Create a citation for each source, formatted using MLA or APA Style (I don’t care which one–just be consistent). Organize your sources Alphabetically.
Step 4: Underneath each citation, write an annotation of 100 words for the source.
In your annotation, briefly summarize the main idea of each source and provide a brief analysis of how the source relates to your research question.
Annotated Bibliography Format:
Please write in a formal academic style; no first person (“I”) statements. Do not use quotations from your sources–paraphrase things in your own words. Do not plagiarize (to avoid accidental plagiarism, don’t copy and paste…instead, take notes in another document while you read). Your annotated bibliography should be typed and submitted via Blackboard in the “Assignments” area by midnight on the due date.[supanova_question]
