The accelerating deployment of renewables has set in motion a global energy transformation that will have profound geopolitical consequences. Just as fossil fuels have shaped the geopolitical map over the last two centuries, the energy transformation will alter the global distribution of power, relations between states, the risk of conflict, and the social, economic and environmental drivers of geopolitical instability.
This is the central premise of “A New World: The Geopolitics of Energy Transformation”, the new report by the Global Commission on the Geopolitics of Energy Transformation.
In the latest HCSS podcast, Strategic Energy Analyst Jan Frederik Braun and Retired General Tom Middendorp discuss this landmark report and shed light on the political, economic, and social implications of the global shift to renewables.
