Energy of the Future: Clean Energy Markets in the Wake of COVID-19

The devastating impact of COVID-19 is unprecedented—spanning the globe, disrupting daily life, and taking a substantial toll on every sector of the economy. The U.S. energy sector was further roiled by a combination of COVID-19 supply chain challenges and demand reductions, as well as geopolitical tensions between oil-producing countries, sending the price of U.S. crude oil negative in late April. This panel will discuss the dynamics that will shape the clean energy markets in 2021 and beyond. Hosted by the BU Institute for Sustainable Energy (ISE) in partnership with the Northeast Clean Energy Council (NECEC). Moderator: Peter Fox-Penner, ISE Director and Professor of Practice, Boston University Questrom School of Business Panelists: Robert Kaufmann, ISE Affiliated Faculty and Professor, Earth & Environment at Boston University Daniel Kammen, Professor of Energy at the University of California, Berkeley Amy Myers Jaffe, Research Professor and Managing Director of the Climate Policy Lab, The Fletcher School, Tufts University Event co-sponsored by BU Earth & Environment, the Pardee School of Global Studies and The Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future, and the BU Energy & Sustainability Club.
