EPISODE 3: Renewable revolution: Industry, innovation and infrastructure

Financing the green shift requires the same cooperative effort that we have seen in the handling of the pandemic, according to Terje Osmundsen and Svein Tveitdal. «There is no lack of money,» says Osmundsen.

Svein Tveitdal is co-founder of Klima2020, and a leading figure on climate and sustainability as a former division director of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), as well as working with the UNEP-led climate communication initiative GRID-Arendal, where he spent more than a decade. 

What needs to be done to achieve a green sustainable revolution in our energy systems? Understanding the infrastructure and industry framework in developing countries can lead to huge opportunities for business to trigger sustainable shifts. 

With several decades of experience in the renewables field, Svein Tveitdal and Terje Osmundsen talk about the barriers and possibilities they identify in the current pandemic situation.
