While many countries are still struggling with the immediate impact of COVID-19, it seems almost certain that this pandemic will have a long-term impact in the energy sector. For the first time in history, the price of oil became negative, causing unprecedented market distortion and putting many companies in financial difficulties. Will the pandemic be a historic turning point that will ultimately bring the breakthrough of sustainable energy sources or will hard hit economies and the dramatic price drop of fossil fuels delay the energy transition?
