COVID-19 Information and Guidance

Webinar — COVID-19, Energy Transitions and the Roles of Energy Sources and New Technologies

The events of 2020 — COVID-19, oil market stress, emerging environmental, social and governance sentiments, and political shifts — have accelerated net-zero and low-carbon ambitions. Governments around the world are working toward economic recovery plans that support green energy choices, and many firms are shifting their investment strategies toward new energy technologies. In order to create solutions that can support accelerated energy transitions, the private sector must take a leadership role in promoting collaboration with stakeholders, cultivating new and existing relationships to leverage technical prowess, and focusing on pathways that provide value-added solutions to the energy mix.

This webinar featured a discussion with a distinguished panel of experts engaged in academia, technology development and heavy industry, who considered the strategies and solutions that can play a meaningful role in energy transitions.
