Namitha Sunny, "Impact of COVID-19 on Energy sectors and energy consumption globally", Housing Energy Research Network, Platform for Experimental Collaborative Ethnography, (June 11, 2020).
This PECE essay focuses mainly on how the coronavirus pandemic impacted the nery consumption as well as the energy sector globally especially across Europe, Africa and Asia. It is interesting to see how the different countries cope with this issue and even some schemes initiated by the countries.
This article is an interesting read to see how the World Bank and Sustainable Energy for All are working collaboratively with the governments and other partners to help developing and underdeveloped countries during this pandemic. From this read, you can see how energy vulnerable this continent is, and the need for energy literature as well to educate the people more about energy justice and how they should be more vocal about their rights. This also throws light on the policy makers to assess the problems of energy poverty.
The novel coronavirus pandemic which was first reported in China, saw a drop in electricity close to 8% due to the nationwide lockdowns and social distancing rules. The impact in China has been most apparent in the dramatic fall for the demand of oil which has in turn affected the global price of oil. China’s stringent lockdown measures have dropped energy production in every form except solar energy. Xizhou Zhou, vice president for global power and renewables at IHS Markit wrote “Renewable generation volume will unlikely be affected significantly due to their non-dispatchability and preferential status in the Chinese power system.”
