Power sector tops social media discussions on climate change during H1 2022, finds GlobalData


July 27, 2022 ( Newswire) 'Climate change' is existential and is disrupting several natural systems, accelerating wildfires, sea-level rise and coastal flooding, and extreme storms. As a result, countries across the globe are joining hands to mitigate the twin challenge of climate change and energy security. In line with this, the volume of social media discussions in the power sector related to 'climate change' is highest among all the sectors during the first half (H1) of 2022, reveals the Social Media Analytics Platform of GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

The power sector was followed by automotive, technology, oil and gas, banking & payments, consumer, travel & tourism, construction, aerospace, defense and security (ADS) and mining.

Smitarani Tripathy, Social Media Analyst at GlobalData, comments: "'Energy security' emerged as the top discussed trend in social media discussions with a staggering rise of more than 3,000% around 'climate change' related to the power sector during H1 2022 over the previous six months.

"Influencers had shared updates on how the recent efforts by top power-consuming nations for energy security are likely to drive the investment in clean energy technology to produce and store power to avoid an energy crisis. Most of the influencers opine that the action towards climate change can be achieved by shifting the focus from fossil fuels to sustainable and renewable energy."

Below are some of the most popular tweets captured by GlobalData's Social Media Analytics Platform:

Nina Skorupska, Chief Executive at The REA:

"Pleased to hear @GregHands express concerns that #EnergyCrisis does not rejuvenate a reliance on fossil fuels from an #EnergySecurity Focus should be on accelerating /investing #renewables #efficiency #cleantechnology (Energy storage, netzero hydrogen)"

Tom Burke, Environmentalist:

"The cost-of-living crisis and the drive for UK #energysecurity have demonstrated the critical need for accelerated #investment in the #netzero solutions of tomorrow. @e3g @hmtreasury #cleanenergy @UKInfraBank #EnergyCrisis"

Connie Hedegaard, former EU Commissioner for Climate Action:

"After 100 days of #UkraineWar, the world keeps paying billions to Russia for fossil fuels. Rapidly accelerated investments in the development of #energyefficiency and energy savings are needed as a wartime effort to increase #energysecurity and speed up #ClimateAction"

Bill Gates, Co-founder of Microsoft Corporation:

"To meet the world's climate goals, clean energy technology needs to be affordable, attractive, and accessible to all."
