Ed’s note: The war for the future of our planet


As discussions around the world turn toward post-pandemic recovery efforts, discussions around the role of renewable energy in kickstarting the world’s economy have been gaining in momentum. 

In the last 24-hours, CNBC, the Guardian and Forbes have all published articles in which the role of renewables has been highlighted and reiterated.

Forbes’s Enrique Dans calls the Coronavirus just the first part of a multi-stage battle saying: “the battle humanity is waging against the coronavirus is only the preliminary round, and after that, we have a much bigger and stronger opponent waiting for us, called the climate emergency.” Dans continues that the growth in economies of scale for both solar power and battery storage is making a change to renewable energy more propitious than ever with these two technologies being more affordable and efficient than ever.
