Aligning economic stimulus with renewable energy

Energy and Clean Tech


As world leaders allocated billions of dollars to legacy fossil fuel energy as part of COVID-19 stimulus packages, our challenge was to hold them to account and call for economic recovery to support accelerating the shift to 100% renewables.


Devised, created and launched a global report which analysed G20 stimulus packages to highlight the focus on fossil fuels and modelled the impact that investing stimulus in renewables could have instead in key markets. The report was launched ahead of the US election to highlight the opportunity of stimulus to create green jobs and accelerate the energy transition worldwide.


This first ever global report for Wärtsilä achieved more than 50 pieces of high quality global media coverage, with a reach of over 250 million and an estimated 500,000 views online.


Put pressure on global governments to focus on the optimised path towards 100% renewable energy and demonstrated Wärtsilä as leader in the global energy transition, driving new engagement with policy makers and industry worldwide and directly supporting market development in key geographies.
