Energy Transition, Europe and Geopolitics

Delivering sustainable economic growth
Posted Nov 18, 2021 | The Hague Center for Strategic Studies, David Criekemans

Decarbonization and the associated energy transition require a fundamental rethinking of Europe’s geo-economic needs and a geopolitical strategy for the longer term. This entails systematic and coordinated efforts to develop shared renewable energy technologies,  that must be structured and consolidated EU entities, by standardizing renewable technologies, suggests  David Criekemans in this article for The Hague Center for Strategic Studies. As there will be winners and losers, countries in the EU’s neighbourhood that feel they are losing, could resort to power politics or might change alliances. The concept of strategic autonomy, often used in European discussions on defence, will therefore need to be expanded to the energy domain.
