Why the Energy Transition is Still an Electricity Turnaround Worldwide

The smarter E Podcast Episode 28 | November 26, 2020

The expansion of renewable energies in the electricity sector is progressing worldwide. However, according to a report by the international network for renewable energies of the 21st century (REN 21) little progress is still being made in the heat and transport sectors.

In the latest episode of The smarter E Podcast, CEO Rana Adib talks about why, if you look at the numbers, the world wide energy transition, effectively is only an electricity turnaround, what role economic stimulus packages play to improve this situation and if hydrogen is the or only one solution.
