Building back better: post-pandemic community resilience
With COVID-19 having a huge impact on communities around the world, will our basic instinct to stay safe have a lasting effect on our energy consumption choices? Jennifer Layke, Global Director for Energy at the World Resources Institute (WRI), explores the societal impact of the pandemic and how governments and policymakers should be taking a community-level approach to building smarter systems for the future.
With the pandemic seeing billions of people confined at home, Jennifer discusses why individuals should rethink their consumption habits following COVID-19 and how we can work together in order to accelerate the transition towards a clean energy future. This includes investing in clean energy solutions, such as electric vehicle charging stations and upgrading energy efficiency within the public sector.
