Aligning Stimulus with Energy Transformation

In this webinar a panel of energy experts discuss the impact of national stimulus programmes to drive the Renewable Energy transition. The pandemic has shown power grids can remain stable while record-breaking amounts of renewable power can be integrated at lower cost than locking in carbon intensive energy.

To avoid making the same mistakes as the GFC and exposing the energy sector to stranded assets and the economy to future shocks it’s vital that stimulus packages are aligned with the energy transition.

This webinar will include a panel of experts discussing the potential to unlock stimulus to realise a sustainable recovery, powered by renewable energy. It is designed to inform government and energy sector leaders as they consider their next vital steps.

 

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Insights to The Energy Policy Tracker, a detailed, real-world snapshot of over 200 individual public funding commitments related to the production and consumption of energy in the G20 countries since the beginning of the pandemic.
  • Panel of experts discussing the potential to unlock stimulus to realize a sustainable recovery, powered by renewable energy.
  • Hear from Carbon Tracker how the COVID-19 crisis has created a space for policy makers to put in place a sustainable energy system enabling the clean energy revolution to continue.

Aligning Stimulus with Energy Transformation
—A report by Wärtsilä Energy

This report examines the potential to focus governments’ energy stimulus explicitly on accelerating transitions towards 100% renewable energy, to spur economic recovery and growth - and put emissions into structural decline. The report synthesises Wärtsilä’s Atlas of 100% Renewable Energy modelling, with real-world analysis of over 200 G20 energy stimulus policies, provided by the Energy Policy Tracker. The report illustrates the potential for five key countries (United States, Brazil, United Kingdom, Germany ands Australia) to leverage stimulus to take a giant leap towards decarbonisation.

Note: the Energy Policy Tracker data used in the Wärtsilä report is accurate as of 26 October. The data used specifically for the UK and US modelling and analysis is based on data originally compiled as of 22 September, due to the time required to model and analyse the scenarios provided in the report. The underlying data used in the UK and US modelling has been assessed against Energy Policy Tracker data as at 26 October and remains accurate as of 26 October."
