This text explores the field of energy visualization; regarding motivation; content and concepts in an academic and non-academic context. Besides the general challenges and demands on visualization of this resource; we discuss the issues of scale and areas of application within current research. Drawing from examples of geographic methods that are aiming to capture human use of resources; every day life and issues of communication between planners; researchers and individuals; there is great potential for future development of visualization tools both for analysis; participatory approaches as well as science communication.
