    Can renewables investors become smart energy traders?

    Can renewables investors become smart energy traders?

    The growth of renewables in the global energy mix is forcing renewables operators to get smart about their trading strategies, so they can thrive in a competitive market. In this episode, we discuss how these firms can adapt to changes such as the move to shorter power purchase agreements; the emergence of new business opportunities; and the importance of digital technology to support these strategies.

    Can renewables compete on a level playing field with fossil fuels? And how will this keep evolving as the climate transition gains pace? We discuss this with Luca Pedretti, COO & Co-Founder of Pexapark; and Peter Bance, CEO & Founder of Origami.

    Can we decarbonise international shipping by 2050?

    Can we decarbonise international shipping by 2050?

    International shipping enables around 80%-90% of global trade and accounts for around 70% of carbon emissions from shipping globally. If the world is to achieve global net zero emissions by 2050, we need to decarbonise the maritime shipping sector with a combination of low-carbon fuels and energy efficiency.

    In this episode, we talk to Ragnar Wisløff from Höegh LNG, a leading provider in the fast growth of liquefied natural gas, which is playing a key role in transforming global energy markets. The company also expanded into green hydrogen in 2021 by buying a minority stake in Gen2 Energy. We talk to him about the importance of fuels in the decarbonisation of the maritime shipping industry.

    What will it take to decarbonise heat?

    What will it take to decarbonise heat?

    Decarbonising heat is one of the biggest challenges for countries and companies to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. Heating for buildings and industrial processes is a major contributor to climate change globally, but is also very difficult to abate. In this episode, we talk to Greencoat Capital’s Richard Nourse and James Samworth about the technology and policy that is needed to make change happen; and find out more about an advanced greenhouse project that Greencoat is involved with in the UK.

    Will oil giants supercharge the transition?

    Will oil giants supercharge the transition?

    Oil giants have responded to Covid-19 by setting out ‘green recovery’ plans that could massively increase their investments in renewables. How will we see these companies change? How will this affect investment in renewables? In this episode, Katherine Peachey from Norwegian giant Equinor joins Natasha Luther-Jones to discuss the changing investment plans of these oil giants and what they mean for the energy transition.
