Episode 1: How is the Covid-19 pandemic affecting the global energy system & CO2 emissions?

from Everything Energy | Published 5/12/2020

The Covid-19 pandemic is first and foremost a health crisis. But by imposing lockdown measures and widely restricting travel and mobility, governments have also halted much of their own economic activities. The pandemic also represents the biggest shock to the global energy system in over 70 years, set to dwarf the impact of the 2008 financial crisis. In the first episode of Everything Energy we chat to Laura Cozzi, the IEA's Chief Energy Modeller, to unpack what this means for demand and consumption across a number of major fuels, as well as CO2 emissions for the rest of the year.
