La fabrique collective des paysages climatiques : une enquête avec les parcs éoliens citoyens en Frise du Nord by Edith Chezel( )

1 edition published in 2018 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Northern Friesland is a region on the Wadden Sea shores in Germany, on the border with Denmark. Since 1991 farmers and locals have partnered to buy and manage wind turbines themselves. They named their companies "citizens wind parks". In 2018, they represent 90% of the installed wind capacity in Friesland, ie around 2000 MW. This thesis is an inquiry with those who made this energy landscape. The “inquiry” is here conceived as method stating that the solution emerges as the problem be-comes clearer. In doing so, the thesis scours from 1975, 40 years of experience with collectively developing and managing wind farms, an experience which suggests renewing our understanding of the relations between energy projects and climate change. Taken as an experience of dwelling the climate, these citizen wind landscapes are successively observed along their sensitive (relational intensities to the environment), practical (socio-technical processes of project set-ups) and political dimensions (collective structuring between citizens and administrations to solve a problem). The thesis proposes a pragmatist and ecologist reformulation (together with John Dewey, Daniel Céfaï and Tim Ingold) of this experience as the collective making of climatic landscapes. The thesis also puts forward the concept of landscape assembly, as a form of landscape, in the political sense inspired by the ancient Landschaften (Kenneth Olwig), to describe a plastic figure, heterogeneous and situated, capable of conducting this experience and of giving an account of it. This last aspect is also discussed in terms of democratic opportunities (Joëlle Zask) and relational responsibility (Joan Tronto) to question the ways of apprehending climate changes
Les paysages de l'énergie : des parcs éoliens citoyens en Frise du Nord by Edith Chezel( )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Ce mémoire propose de s'interroger sur les paysages de l'énergie dans le cas -très particulier- des parcs éoliens citoyens en Frise du Nord. À la fois déroutantes dans leur spatialisation et structurantes dans leur socialisation, les éoliennes de Frise, parce qu'elles sont le produit de l'activité des habitants, décrivent la construction d'un paysage commun et approprié par ceux-ci. Ce mémoire propose également de décrire deux méthodes de terrain utilisées : une pratique de "transect" et la concentration sur les collectifs plutôt que sur les collecteurs."
Energie( )

[La 4e de couverture porte :] Les crises environnementales nous invitent à changer notre conception et notre pratique de l'énergie, pour l'envisager non pas uniquement comme objet d'un calcul économique et technique, et comme ressource exploitable, mais comme ce qui renvoie à l'ensemble des <<éléments>> avec lesquels les êtres humains ont à faire : le vent, le feu, l'eau, par exemple, mais aussi l'histoire et la mémoire des lieux et des espaces. Quelle place les paysagistes peuvent-ils prendre et occuper dans cette tâche, à la fois du point de vue des modes d'action, des choix techniques et des formes de pensée? Quels récits du monde peuvent-ils élaborer et proposer? L'énergie est un fait social et un fait paysager. Les dispositifs de production, de stockage, de mise en circulation et d'utilisation de l'énergie ont un puissant impact sur l'organisation et l'apparence des cadres de vie. Il y a un paysage du charbon et un paysage du pétrole. Mais il s'agirait également d'explorer les paysages du vent, de l'eau, du soleil et de la traction animale, afin d'attirer l'attention sur la diversité des modes de présence de l'énergie dans la composition des paysages. Ce sont ces histoires que Les Carnets du paysage proposent de parcourir
Energy landscape as a polity. Wind power practices in Northern Friesland (Germany)( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: The success of wind power development in Northern Friesland (Germany) is mainly due to its 'citizen wind parks'. However, their historical emergence, as well as their astonishing scale-up from small to large wind farms, is little understood from the inside. Following the critical approach of assemblage thinking, this paper's proposal is to revise the notion of 'assembly' to investigate collective processes of 'attunement'. The paper stresses the practical work of valuating 'things' and making them commensurable in the light of the relations (inherited practices, place attachments, project perspectives) grounded in a place. This approach makes it possible to identify the ways in which assemblies from Northern Friesland have negotiated and transformed an inherited landscape into a shared wind power landscape. We call this activity in which local assemblies engage 'a polity'. Finally, we illustrate the term's conceptual potential by discussing its scope and links to techniques of power that follow from environmental 'governmentality'
