Introduction

As a part of the critical infrastructure network, utilities will play a central role in economic recovery. This broadcast brings stakeholders together to discuss the impact of the pandemic on utilities and how the sector can work together to prepare utilities for the post-pandemic surge in energy demand.

Description

  • How are utilities dealing with disruptions in demand and payments? 
  • What has been the impact on already-fragile utilities and what steps are being taken for recovery?  
  • What role can digitalisation play? 
  • What financial implications will the pandemic have on projects mid-construction?
  • As current power needs are reduced, is now the time to invest in repairs and new capacity in readiness for the economy to bounce back in 2021?
