This chapter considers the relationship between energy systems and the spatial integration of economies through trade and investment. It examines the ways in which the current energy system—based on fossil fuels—and the globalization of trade and investment are closely intertwined. The chapter considers the role of energy systems as a driver of globalization. It then focuses on the liberalization of energy trade and investment and the increasing spatial integration of energy markets. The final section of the chapter examines the implications of the low-carbon economy for a further deepening of globalization.

Keywords:   energy systems, fossil fuels, international trade, investment, globalization, spatial integration, low-carbon economy
