ABSTRACT
The depletion of resources and environmental pollution caused by excessive consumption of fossil energy has made the development and utilization of renewable energy the focus of the world. This paper uses social network analysis method to analyze the network characteristics of global trade of renewable energy products, and empirically studies the factors of trade network formation through QAP method. The results showed that: (1) Each node country has a close relationship in the global trade network of renewable energy products, and the spatial pattern shows heterogeneity; (2) In the renewable energy product trade network, Germany, the United States and China At a clear core position, some European countries are semi-marginal, some developing countries and emerging economies are gradually emerging; (3) Economic scale, geographical proximity, technological factors and regional trade relevance to trade in renewable energy products The formation of the network structure has a positive impact, but the degree of impact on different products varies significantly.
