COVID-19 has caused a global standstill, with countries working to prioritise public health and limit the economic impact of the pandemic.
In this first episode of their new series, Dave Turk, Acting Deputy Executive and Head of the Strategic Initiatives Office at the International Energy Agency (IEA), discusses the importance of including renewables in economic stimulus packages and why clean energy technologies are showing resilience in these unprecedented times.
With the IEA’s Global Energy Review 2020 finding that, despite a predicted 6% overall drop in global energy demand in 2020, renewable energy use will increase following the pandemic, policymakers must continue to prioritise climate change and put clean energy at the heart of their recovery plans.
What can we learn from the global response to COVID-19 in order to accelerate the energy transition?
