De circulaire economie heeft echter ook ruimte nodig om het circulair functioneren te faciliteren, met name de (her)maakindustrie. Toch verdwijnen in Nederland...

This article reviews the literature on the geopolitics of renewable energy. It finds that while the roots of this literature can be traced back to the 1970s and 1980s, most of it has been published from 2010 onwards.

Partly for good reasons; while the utilization of renewables diminishes energy scarcity and lowers various kinds of pollution, their potential to address energy related geopolitical tensions among producer, consumer, and...
