COVID-19 has changed the world as we know it. As countries rebuild economies from the impact of the pandemic, they are faced with a unique, once-in-a-generation opportunity to ‘Recover Better’ with sustainable energy.Damilola Ogunbiyi CEO and Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Sustainable Energy for All and Co-Chair of UN-Energy,.
Finally, a UCP issues manager posts something I can agree with:
"We should take reasonable steps to reduce emissions, not tell lies."

Federal government picks Gitane De Silva to be chief executive of the agency
Ottawa has selected a former Alberta trade representative to the United States as the new head of the Canada Energy Regulator.
Gitane De Silva, whose past experience includes work as a senior diplomat, has been chosen to be the regulator’s next CEO for a five-year term.
She replaces Sandy Lapointe, who had been the organization’s acting chief executive.
“Under Ms. De Silva’s leadership, the CER will continue its role of overseeing — on behalf of all Canadians — a strong, safe and sustainable Canadian energy sector as we transition to a low-carbon economy,” the Liberal government said in a written statement Thursday.
De Silva has held senior executive roles within the Canadian and Alberta governments. In 2015, she was appointed Alberta’s senior representative in Washington, D.C., by the then-NDP government.
