The coronavirus pandemic has unprecedented effects on the global economy since the aftermath of World War 2. As the world enters the battle and now has a decent fighting chance with the recently rolled out vaccines from different manufacturers, energy stakeholders might have been asking crucial questions such as: “Will decarbonization of the US grid be accelerated or decelerated during the battle against COVID-19 pandemic?” and “How can the pandemic affect the project returns for wide-ranging development of renewable energy systems across the US?”
Beyond the crucial questions revolving around the speed at which energy systems will become ‘renewables-centric’, C-level executives and their utilities, comprehensive developers of solar and wind systems, investment banks, ISOs, regulators, and energy officials financing in clean energy will also provide clarity on certain topics.
The topics include the future of renewable energy resources and capacity markets in the US markets, enduring risks in wholesale market for renewable generation, the purpose of natural gas in the ongoing transition, the effect of energy demand variations on utility renewable purchasing, and many more.
