The renewable and traditional energy sectors have been in constant motion over the past several years as these industries are reshaped by technological innovation and broader socioeconomic factors. COVID-19, and the national and global responses to stem the consequences of the pandemic, have had far reaching effects on everything from local economies to national politics to the global supply chain. As one of the largest sectors of nearly every national economy, the energy industry as a whole has faced significant challenges from these effects. While some of these challenges – and resulting opportunities – are shared alike by all participants in the energy sector, participants in traditional energy and renewable energy are also facing issues that are meaningfully unique.

- What has been the impact of COVID-19 on investment in the sector relative to other industries?
- What are the areas of enhanced focus in M&A agreements and commercial contracts as a result of COVID-19?
- What will private equity investment and other financial investments in the sector look like in the next 12-18 months as the economy recovers from the impact of COVID-19?
- What types of new/different M&A opportunities do you expect to see in the sector in the next 12 months?
