You’re talking nonsense Granny.   We need government intervention to ensure that there are the incentives for green energy and the disincentives for dirty energy.  Phasing out of internal combustion engines and forcing all vehicles to be zero emissions by a certain date is not “setting the energy market free”.  It’s just the opposite.

Our governments will be running monster deficits this year and probably next year as well. There will be no money for incentives or appetite to suppress the economy further with added taxes. Business is on life support so don't expect money from there either. If anything, this pandemic will slow the transition to cleaner energy sources.
