Synopsis: The rise of renewable energy has complicated many of the longstanding dynamics in the relationship between trade and energy. In the traditional fossil fuel based economy, there are “haves” and “have nots,” and both the suppliers of fossil fuels (such as oil) and the consumers of such energy sources have had a tacit interest in ensuring the free, uninterrupted flow of energy in global markets. Renewable energy, on the other hand, at least in theory offers a more “democratized” energy paradigm, one in which conceivably any country can deploy the infrastructure necessary to convert “free” and abundant resources, such as sun and wind, into productive energy. As renewables increase their role in various national energy mixes, will countries’ incentives change with respect to trade, protectionism, and industrial policy in the energy sector? For example, are recent tariffs on imported solar panels put in place by India and the United States a harbinger of things to come as more countries seek to create conditions conducive to “indigenizing” the production of renewable energy technologies?
