How the COVID-19 Crisis Can Lead Us to a Climate-Neutral Economy

Climate protection and energy transition are solutions for both needs: A successful energy transition that ensures a full supply of domestic renewable energy makes systemic business case and creates enormous economic resilience; it makes us independent of external negative shocks. It also strengthens regional value creation, promotes innovation and increases the competitiveness of the entire economy. In her presentation, Prof Dr Claudia Kemfert explains how exactly the COVID-19 crisis can be turned into an opportunity for a new start into a climate-neutral economy.

Claudia Kemfert is a German economics expert in the areas of energy research and environmental protection. She is a Professor of Energy Economics and Sustainability at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin.
