After conceptualizing the interrelationships between energy and tourism, the authors
provide a definition of energy tourism as a new niche of industrial tourism, theorize
on how it overlaps with other types of special interest tourism, and discuss specifics
concerning its forms, locales, and possible societal impacts. Potential directions,
along with research questions, for future research in the field of energy tourism are
proposed. Then, the results of an explorative pilot study of energy tourism in the
Czech Republic are presented to give a first insight into the proposed questions.
Questionnaire surveys completed by tourists and operators of three energy tourism
attractions – so-called Coal Safaris (guided tours through surface coal mines,
observing minescapes and mining machinery in full operation), a nuclear power plant
information centre, and Dragon Kite Festivals under wind turbines – have focused on
exploring the motivations and perceived benefits of energy tourism for organizations,
tourists’ motivations for, and experience from, visiting, and any changes in attitudes
towards current energy development dilemmas by visitors afterwards.
