An interview with Barry Bredenkamp, General Manager Energy Efficiency, South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI), and Dr Ivor Blumenthal, CEO, ArkKonsult, discussing the Green New Deal (GND) and how harnessing its benefits can help grow the economy and create jobs in a post-COVID-19 world.
