What were the big energy stories of 2020?

A discussion thread.

Happy 2021, Volties! Today is the day my mini-paywall goes up — from now on only paid subscribers will be able to comment on posts — but I thought before I pulled the trigger on that I would have one last discussion open to everyone. Please contribute!

2020 was a garbage year, but even through all the chaos, clean energy continued growing. As you think back over the year, what mattered? What political changes, policies, or technological developments will energy historians highlight when they write about 2020?

You don’t have to pick the Most Important Thing — just something you thought was significant, a bit of signal in the noise. I’ll share my pick in the thread. Come chat!
