Abstract

This very short book chapter provides an overview of how the COVID-19 pandemic has already impacted climate emissions, the potential long-term effects on emissions, and already adopted and proposed green stimulus programs in the U.S. and elsewhere. Experience from the 2008 financial crisis suggests that a green stimulus could provide a long-term boost to renewable energy and related carbon-free technologies and infrastructure.

Keywords: COVID-19, climate change, renewable energy
