Energy is critical to managing the COVID-19 pandemic. It is expected of the energy systems and infrastructure that are crucial for modern life that they be resilient to natural disasters and other unintended occurrences and risks. However, the scale of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has affected all of the world’s countries at the same time, is a test to the resilience of energy systems globally.
This paper presents the results of two EEG-funded online workshops hosted by Mzuzu University on the impact of COVID-19 on Malawi’s energy sector, and the coping mechanisms employed by the various stakeholders within the sector.
