The Geopolitics of Renewable Energy
O'Sullivan, Meghan, Indra Overland, and David Sandalow. "The Geopolitics of Renewable Energy." HKS Faculty Research Working Paper Series RWP17-027, June 2017.
For a century, the geopolitics of energy has been synonymous with the geopolitics of oil and gas. However, geopolitics and the global energy economy are both changing. The international order predominant since the end of World War II faces mounting challenges. At the same time, renewable energy is growing rapidly. Nevertheless, the geopolitics of renewable energy has received relatively little attention, especially when considering the far reaching consequences of a global shift to renewable energy.
