Making 100% The New Normal

Today, the IRENA Coalition for Action, of which the Platform is a member, has published a Call to Action in Response to COVID-19: Renewable Energy is a Key Part of the Solution. The statement says, among other things:

Renewable energy solutions provide clean, reliable, easy to mobilise and cost-effective energy for essential services, including healthcare, water and food supply. This makes them crucial in the immediate response to COVID-19. Furthermore, renewable energy must play a key role in economic recovery, ensuring sustainability and energy security, creating jobs and strengthening resilience to protect people’s health and welfare. No other industry can match such impact while simultaneously reducing global climate emissions.”
