A New Energy Infrastructure – Lisa Jacobson, Business Council for Sustainable Energy

“The Covid-19 pandemic has created the biggest shock to the global energy system since at least World War II…Renewables are the only energy source that will grow in 2020.” David Turk in Congressional hearing

A key component of President Biden’s infrastructure plan is addressing our energy needs and doing so in a way that does not continue to hurt the planet or public health.  We are acutely aware of the massive impact the pandemic had on the energy sector – with oil going literally to below zero dollars per barrel for the first time – and are also acutely aware of our economy’s dependence on energy of some kind.

So, how do we move forward to address this conundrum?

Listen to this fascinating discussion with Lisa Jacobson, president of the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) and host Joan Michelson on how a silver lining in this crisis may be the critical clean energy innovation coming out of it, including millions of new, high-skilled jobs. (This was recorded under our previous name, Green Connections Radio.)

“Go for it! Do your research on organizations, share your passion and be persistent. (Renewable energies) are the growth sectors.” Lisa Jacobson
