The analysis is based on 385 responses received between 30 April and 18 May.

Impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the renewable energy sector

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted how low carbon emissions have a positive impact on the environment. As people remain indoors and businesses are shut down, the world is experiencing a dramatic decline in emission levels.

A report released by the International Energy Agency notes that global carbon emissions are expected to decline by 8% in 2020 to reach the levels recorded a decade ago. The positive change in emission levels has led environmentalists to advocate the need for a transition towards renewable energy to maintain these levels and avoid potential crises in future.
