Webinar: Clean Energy Sector Insights

Matias Wibowo, Sector Lead for Energy & the Environment explores entrepreneur and investor views on the impact of the COVID-19 crisis, around the momentum towards clean energy transformation, along with some special guests.

May 18, 2020

We hear first-hand observations of how consumers and governments will impact demand for clean energy products and services as the pandemic recedes from our guest speakers covering both the entrepreneur and investor perspectives.

We cover questions such as:

  • How has this set back last year’s momentum towards improved sustainability?
  • How much are investors prioritising sustainability and clean energy?
  • How are clean energy companies adapting and surviving?
