Event details

Join YESI for the seventh online event under the 'Ask the Author' series. During the series, you will have the chance to discuss - with the authors - the findings of newly released papers from the University of York.

During this event, Dr Joshua Kirshner will discuss his recently published paper 'Energy access is needed to maintain health during pandemics'. This paper was co-authored with Professor Vanesa Castán Broto, University of Sheffield.

Energy plays a central role in responding to emergencies such as the COVID-19 pandemic, from ensuring adequate healthcare services to supporting households during lockdowns. Protecting the renewable energy industry and its contribution to providing sustainable energy access for all must be an urgent priority in the current crisis.
