The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), alongside other players, has released a statement urging governments to consider wind energy a “cornerstone of the global economic recovery.”

GWEC said in the statement: “The lasting impact of COVID-19 and the pace of global recovery will depend on the actions that we all take over the coming months.

“To achieve a sustainable and lasting economic recovery, these actions should focus on long-term impacts as well as the short-term need to generate growth and jobs.

“Governments need to ensure that their primary focus is on facilitating the clean energy transition, upholding emission standards and targeting public investments to Rebuild Better for the future.”
