This paper aims to analyse the geopolitics of renewable energy, focusing on whether the transition to renewable energy will provide more instances for countries to use renewable energy as an influence tool.

Secondly, while critical minerals, crucial for the “harvesters” of renewable energy, may exhibit characteristics akin to hydrocarbons in terms of their potential for geopolitical leverage, this essay contends that the ongoing technological advancements will undermine the utility of critical minerals as instruments of geopolitical dominance.
