Corporate Knights EARTH INDEX 1/5: The Green Power Wave

A green grid to enable carbon-free energy within the next decade is within our grasp. It will require smart policies and financial structures to build out the requisite clean power generation, transmission capacity, and crucially, storage. This session considers the current state of affairs including the carbon intensity of the grid, progress made in the past year, and what is required in terms of strengthened policies, capital mobilization, and infrastructure roll-out (storage, generation, and transmission) to put us on track to a resilient carbon-free grid by 2030—as per the Corporate Knights Build Back Better Model Scenario.
