Corruption is expected to pose major obstacles for the green energy transition. Decarbonisation of energy systems requires investments from the tens to hundreds of trillions of dollars. It is widely acknowledged that corruption is used to artifically extend the life of carbon-intensive industries, yet green energy itself is far from immune from corrupt practices. The effects of corruption on green energy transition outcomes are likely contingent on local political economies and the reactions of power holders to new constraints and opportunities. Targeted-to-context and politically savvy responses that address underlying causes and enablers of corruption are therefore essential.
