Pipelines and Turbines...More than hot air.
Some great insight into relevant topics. Let's see this podcast come out on a regular basis. You're suffering from the same challenges as wind; intermittent output. With three well-spoken, well-informed, average funny individuals I look forward to hearing from them again. They are not just hot air.
Keep it coming!
I thoroughly enjoy the show, the array of thoughtful and talented guests, and the spirited but grounded banter between you three.
Would love to hear an episode focused on hydrogen; grey, blue and green... challenges and opportunities for Canadian industry and communities looking to host projects. Thanks!
