Transitioning faster together post COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every corner of society, including the renewable energy industry. With the demand for fossil fuels falling significantly, and countries focusing on how the economy will recover, what does the future hold for the climate emergency? In this final episode, Ditlev Engel, CEO of DNV GL – Energy, reflects on the topics raised during the series and explores how governments, businesses and other key decision-makers can work together for change, both in the fight against COVID-19 and in accelerating our transition towards a clean energy future.
Suggesting we need to “think big” when it comes to decarbonization, Ditlev explains that we have the technology needed to support the energy transition, but more regulatory reform and finance is required to further these opportunities and replace existing fossil fuel capacity.
