As 2020 comes to an end, the first year of the decade has been anything but what we expected. Challenges caused by a global pandemic, climate change, and systemic racism have had a profound effect on our society. But, this moment also represents a unique opportunity for the energy industry to collaborate and lead in response to these challenges. This panel discussion will investigate in detail how the clean energy economy can help the nation with needed changes.
