At times like this, facing a global pandemic caused by the spread of COVID-19, it is more important than ever to think about opportunities for minimising the economic impact and the potential job losses. It is precisely during moments of crisis that we end up rethinking the world as we knew it before and these reflections can lead to important opportunities for change.

The heightened awareness of society, particularly among younger groups, has placed the need to achieve an energy transition towards a sustainable model based on renewable energies at the centre of the socio-political agenda.
