Great up to date info about the state of renewable energy in Australia. You should get Andrew blakers on to talk about pumped hydro.
I found this podcast as an energy engineering student who wanted to become a bit more literate in the economic space as well as keep up with current developments.
It is well balanced, insightful and all over this dynamic and contested topic. The quality of the discussion is reflected in the caliber of the guests that they manage to rope in on a weekly basis.
Thanks for the in-depth interviews and analyses Giles and David. There is so much going on behind the scenes that we rarely hear about in the renewables sector. This is my go-to podcast to keep up to date on what’s happening in this space. Keep up the great work!
