The Geoeconomics of Sovereign Wealth Funds and Renewable Energy

Towards a new energy paradigm in the Euro-Mediterranean region

Edited by: Simone Tagliapietra

Contributions by: Franco Bassanini

This book proposes an innovative vision on the development process of the enlarged Mediterranean region. Triangulating the Gulf Cooperation Council, North Africa, and the European Union into a unique cooperation scheme, the book highlights the strong complementarity that exists between these regions in the field of renewable energy. The wide availability of Sovereign Wealth Funds' capital in the Gulf Cooperation Council, the great renewable energy potential of North Africa, and the institutional support of the European Union are the three main pillars of this cooperation scheme. This triangulation would enhance not only the energy outlook of the overall Mediterranean region, but also its socio-economic development, ultimately promoting an enlarged area of cooperation, stability, and peace.
