#LKDForum 2020: Opening Ceremony

Welcome to the LKDF Forum 2020
For the recovery from the COVID-19 crisis to be durable and resilient, recovery packages should be designed to “build back better”. For instance, these could help accelerate the shift towards a zero-carbon; climate-resilient electricity system while creating jobs. Energy efficiency is a clear candidate for a green recovery package, but it is essential to achieve climate goals and is often generally labor-intensive. These measures can be accompanied by investments in training to reduce skills shortages in the power and energy sector, including energy system engineers and building retrofit specialists.
High-level dignitaries joined the LKDF Forum 2020 and shared their messages for greener industrial skills development.
