Key Points

    “Renewable energy sector is also inevitably hit by this pandemic, remarkably under the disrupted supply chain and logistic which cause inevitable postponed projects. This pandemic creates both, opportunities and threat to RE as target and priorities of government are still on the fence. However, there is an optimism that this pandemic could shine a silver lining on how to progress with the energy transition and shape the RE industries once the economy bounces back.”

This energy insight is supported by the ASEAN Climate Change and Energy Project (ACCEPT), funded by the Norwegian Government under the Norwegian-ASEAN Regional Integration Programme (NARIP) and is jointly implemented by the ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE) and the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI). The project includes the active involvement of key ASEAN stakeholders, and helps enhance modelling, analytical and regional policy planning capacities within ASEAN.
