The Impact of COVID-19 on Renewable Project Development and Climate Technology Investment in North America

Event overview

2020 was always going to be critical for climate change in the United States, but now, as the focus is on managing and recovering from the coronavirus outbreak, the political will and financing needed to address the climate crisis may be at risk. Melanie Nakagawa, Director of Climate Strategy at Princeville Capital, and Leslie Hodge, Associate at Baker Botts, discussed the opportunities and challenges that face the industry and asked what have we learned from previous stimulus measures that aimed to drive investments in renewable and climate-friendly technologies.
