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.
