It is all hands on deck to deal with the current energy crisis, even if that forces countries to use more polluting fossil fuels to meet energy needs especially in the coming winter. However, that does not mean the transition to renewable resources should end up on the backburner. Instead, there is a clear case for accelerating the move to solar, wind and other sources of clean energy.
Listen to this Talking heads podcast with Edward Lees, co-head environmental strategies group, and chief market strategist Daniel Morris. They discuss opportunities ranging from US infrastructure and securing supply chains for electric vehicle batteries to EV software and residential solar panels. Lees warns that funding support for under-pressure households should target the beneficiaries of high oil and gas prices without jeopardising the capital spending needed to speed up the energy transition.
