Asia, Africa, Latin America & the Caribbean: Utility Emergency Preparedness - Mitigating the Impacts of a Global Pandemic

At a time in the world when countries are desperately seeking a cure and are trying to stem the spread of COVID-19, not only has society’s daily routine been transformed, but the electric industry’s as well.  Patterns of energy demand that have been largely predictable are now turned on their heads. In addition, social distancing has led to lower energy demand, impacting revenue streams and shifting load curves, potentially impacting long term contracts.  How are utilities addressing this new “normal” and what strategies are they putting in place to be more resilient and to handle such emergencies in the future?

Please join us for a webinar on how utilities and energy companies are addressing the issues of COVID-19 and meeting the dynamic needs of the power sector during a global pandemic. This webinar will be recorded, for those that wish to listen at a later time.

Please send questions for panelists in advance to [email protected].

This webinar is supported by a cooperative agreement with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
