Energy of the Future Webinar Series
The one-two punch of climate change and COVID-19 has rattled the world, derailing life as we know it and magnifying environmental injustices. As we collectively grapple with what the future holds, what will the pandemic mean for this “climate decade” and beyond: How will it influence climate action urgency? Will the pandemic-induced shakeup in global markets spur accelerated long-term growth in clean energy? Will new trade dynamics ignite clean manufacturing innovation in the U.S.?
The Boston University Institute for Sustainable Energy (ISE) in partnership with the Northeast Clean Energy Council (NECEC) has tackled these pressing questions in our Energy of the Future webinar series. Stay tuned for our spring webinar schedule as our series continues.
