Fourteen expert organizations from around the globe — including SEI — launched www.energypolicytracker.org, a database that showcases ongoing research into COVID-19 recovery packages from a climate and energy perspective.

G20 governments have pledged to inject trillions of dollars into the global economy to counteract the health, social and financial shocks caused by the COVID-19 crisis. This large-scale stimulus spending will shape the global economy for decades to come. Governments have an opportunity to use their recovery packages to accelerate the clean energy transition.

Many policies are still in the making. As such, the website is updated weekly, as more countries and new policies are added by researchers. In a time characterized by rapid policy change, the Energy Policy Tracker offers a near real-time snapshot of international progress.
