Law firm Ashurst has released a report into a number of emerging technologies in the energy sector, such as electric vehicles and battery storage, highlighting key trends across the power sector amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Among their findings, Ashurst does not expect interest and investment in these fields to decline despite ongoing uncertainties.

The report, ‘Powering Change – Energy in Transition’ polled more than 2,000 “senior business leaders” from across G20 member states concerning their investment in new energy technologies. Battery storage and electric vehicles were the most popular investments, with 46% and 43% of respondents investing in these projects respectively, while two-thirds of Indian respondents had made investments into electric vehicles alone.
