Chapter: 10. An Emergent Trans-Asian Energy Nexus: The Likely Costs and the Possible Benefits

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.21228


This chapter is concerned with the environmental protection of the places where the search for elements that produce energy have increased in the last years. Its aims are three-fold: first, to outline the evolution of the emergent oil nexus between the major Asian consumers and Gulf producers; second, to analyse the short, medium and possible long-term risks that arise from this dynamic; and third, to consider possible medium to longer-term benefits that might arise from a trans-Asian energy collaboration based on renewable energy.
