CLEAN Network Webinar
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a disrupting effect globally. In India, with the Government declaring a 21-day national lockdown to contain the infection, businesses have been affected. The decentralized renewable energy sector (DRE) sector in India is no exception to this.
Power for All and the Clean Energy Access Network (CLEAN) co-hosted a webinar about the impact of COVID-19 on India’s DRE sector. Power for All’s communication director Divya Kottadiel spoke on the importance of the right messaging and communications to support the sector during this pandemic. A recording of the webinar is available here.
Staying Connected During COVID-19
As the world grapples with the COVID-19 global pandemic, it is easy for fear to overwhelm us, and for a myriad of questions to race through our minds. If you’re feeling afraid, you’re not alone. Keeping a positive mindset can go a long way in managing through these challenging times as we navigate our way through the uncharted waters.
At Power for All, we have continued to embrace technology by keeping in touch virtually more often. This has been an antidote that gives everyone on the team a positive attitude. By sharing some of the things helping to keep us upbeat and positive during this time of self-isolation, we are learning some of the best coping mechanisms to get us through as well as strengthen our bonds. By engaging yourself in simple activities such as art, yoga, movie marathons, music, coloring, writing, and collaging can be a great way to keep your brain focused, raise your vibration and create more positive feelings
Remember that a simple call, a text message or an email can be as useful and important as any of the more complex means of staying in touch with each other. The world will go back to normal, but for the time being try to look for joy and respite where you can.
Solar energy has experienced spectacular growth over the past two decades. But the crisis caused by the COVID-19 could considerably disrupt this momentum. More than ever, governments will be central in tackling these challenges and determining the pace of deployment of solar energy in the near future. Join Kristina Skierka, CEO of Power for All and Upendra Tripathy, the director-general of the International Solar Alliance in a fireside chat hosted by the ET EnergyWorld on April 27, 2020, at 12:00 PM (IST) as they discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the solar power industry.
