2020 can't get behind us fast enough. But the shocking realization we've all faced about how vulnerable our society and global economy is also one of the reasons we've seen the remarkable embrace of ‘net zero’ by the business community this year.
Asia-based companies are generally moving in the right direction and addressing their energy consumption, thought there is still some way to go. A survey of large companies with at least $250m in annual revenue by Schneider Electric found that 34 percent of energy professionals were less than confident that their current corporate sustainability goals would be effective in helping their organisation while and 14 per cent were not at all confident.
Julian Gonsalves explains how public-private partnerships can provide government officials with solutions to meet reliability, resiliency and environmental targets.
Can public-private partnerships (P3s) help governments adapt to the evolving energy landscape?
The energy landscape has been changing dramatically. Aggressive climate goals, impact of COVID-19 on government revenue and budgets, aging infrastructure, decreasing cost of energy, stakeholder pressure, need for resiliency, and innovative technical and market solutions are just a few of the factors driving this transformation.
Resilience has taken on new meaning in an extraordinary year like 2020.
Against the tumultuous backdrop of a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic, an unprecedented surge in climate-related disasters, and a historic reckoning with systemic inequities, 2020 has served as a defining moment in our collective memory. As we look to the future, the decade ahead will largely be defined by how we come together in collaborative and innovative ways to overcome the most urgent, significant challenges of our time (what our CEO Pat Gelsinger coined “The Triple Threat”).
