PRESENTATION OF RESEARCH ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE ENERGY SECTOR IN ASIA AND THE PACIFIC DURING THE CRISIS CAUSED BY THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
As a member of the university’s Asia-Pacific Research Center, I had a great opportunity to present the results of my latest research. After many months of virtual scientific events, I felt extremely excited to participate in a hybrid conference, during which some of the speeches (including mine) were made in the university recording studio in the InQube building.
The crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has had a severe impact on the energy sectors of the Asia-Pacific economies. Locally imposed restrictions and the global challenges resulting from this unprecedented economic crisis had a multi-dimensional impact on energy supply and demand in 2020-2021. Examples of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are, for example, sharp fluctuations in the prices of fossil fuels (including oil, natural gas and coal), a general decline in energy demand, along with higher demand in the housing sector, and last but not least, restrictions in transport and mobility.
My presentation at the 10th Asia Pacific International Conference was aimed at reviewing and discussing the most important challenges faced by the Asia-Pacific energy sectors in 2020-2021. In addition, I presented some of the opportunities that arise from the COVID-19 pandemic in the context of decarbonizing renewable energy.
