IMPACT OF COVID ON THE POWER SECTORS IN EMERGING ECONOMIES AND ACTIONS FOR RECOVER

Dates:
  • Wed 16 Sep 2020 14.00 - 15.00
  Add to Calendar 2020-09-16 14:00 2020-09-16 15:00 Europe/Paris IMPACT OF COVID ON THE POWER SECTORS IN EMERGING ECONOMIES AND ACTIONS FOR RECOVER

Join FSR Global and the IAEE to examine the impact of COVID on the power sectors in emerging economies and actions for recovery.

The impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy as well as the society has been unprecedented. In these troubling times of ‘social distancing’ and ‘working from home’, the centrality of electricity in powering our current and future societies is more evident than ever before.

However, the power sector also is not immune to the adverse effects of the pandemic. The long-term impact of the current situation would only become apparent with time. While emerging economies continue to grapple with controlling the pandemic, policymakers have taken note of the fallout on the power sector and have started working on an action plan for a quick recovery.

This webinar brings together leading experts from different emerging economies to provide insights on the similarities and divergence in the impact of COVID-19 on their power sectors as well as debate possible learning and synergies on post-COVID-19 recovery actions.

Webinar in collaboration with FSR Global and the International Association for Energy Economics.
