Clean energy can power a COVID-19 recovery:

As the pandemic rises and claims lives reaching the most poorest and vulnerable regions around the world, it adds as an unprecedented health and economic crisis to existing poverty and climate crises. It calls for a comprehensive and collaborative response. And at the root of it is clean energy; essential to help countries prepare, respond, and recover from COVID-19 crisis. Clean energy can provide affordable solutions that are in line with climate targets and can help mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 crisis on people’s livelihoods and local economies. On the frontline of the battle, energy for households and health centres is critical and yet 840 million people don’t have electricity, 570 million of them live in sub-Saharan Africa, where one in four clinics has no energy at all, and 28 percent don’t have consistent access. As nations prepare for the aftermath of the virus, there is an open opportunity for a global reset. Ambitious green stimulus plans will help countries restore their economies while deepening their energy transition. We need to ensure the world stays on track with its climate targets. Now is a good time to reform fossil fuel subsidies and re-assess the options countries have to accelerate their clean energy transition to sustain a recovery that’s better for all.
