Maria Moræus Hansen, Andreas Sohmen-Pao, Steinar Eikaas, Kjerstin Braathen

2020 has been a year of unparalleled change and uncertainty. Is the energy transition accelerating? Join us for a virtual launch on 9th September.

While some impacts of COVID-19 are short-term, others will drastically change the way we live, work, travel and do business far into the future. This in turn will have huge implications for the energy transition. 

How has the pandemic affected global energy demand? Have we already passed peak emissions? How will the energy mix change to 2050, and which technologies are important? How can finance and policy accelerate the transition?
