The impact of COVID-19 on the electricity sector throughout the Asia Pacific has been immediate, deep, and profound.
Assumptions underpinning regulatory, policy, commercial, and strategic decisions have been disrupted. A large part of this disruption is tied to the immediate impact of lockdowns and distancing measures and the abrupt curtailment of international mobility.
In this webinar, Mike walks us through an evidence-based journey and deep dive into the early issues and headline impacts of Covid-19 in the region. Special focus is given to the impacts on power markets in Asia Pacific, and how lockdown measures have impacted short- and medium-term demand trajectories and fuel price dynamics as well as reviewing the implications of supply-side market conditions to the region.
Further discussion is provided by David Wogan - Assistant Vice President for the Asia Pacific Energy Research Center (APERC) -who leads their energy outlook work.
