Geographies of power: Spatial strategies for a ‘socially just’ energy transition in Tamil Nadu.
Tamil Nadu, India

The era of energy transition has brought to the front the incredible potential of designing the reciprocal relationship between energy and space. The transition to renewable sources of energy like wind, solar and geothermal energy, uses space in a different way – its altered spatial qualities have blurred the boundaries between technical space (shunned by planners) and ‘non-technical’ space (coveted by planners). This spatial dimension of energy transition is the focus of this graduation project. Taking the case of Tamil Nadu, India, the project proposes a re-imagination of emerging energy geographies through regional design and spatial strategies, to create a framework for a humanised socio-technical transition.
