    How Signify is lighting the way for sustainable operations with CEO Stephen Rouatt

    How Signify is lighting the way for sustainable operations with CEO Stephen Rouatt

    In this very special episode of Powered On, we’re joined by Stephen Rouatt, the CEO of Signify UK and Ireland. As you can expect from such a collaboration, this episode is all about lighting and its impact on both the environment and consumers’ pockets. 
    Signify has gone all-in on achieving a massive reduction in carbon emissions, whether it’s through ditching plastic packaging or by investing heavily in renewables all around the world. The company is keen to see other companies commit to this decarbonisation, with Stephen positive that the UK will achieve its net zero goal.
    Renewable power and recyclable packaging aren’t the only ways to reduce your carbon footprint though. Stephen also highlights the importance of LEDs in reducing the impact lighting has on your energy footprint, with further savings coming from smart connected lighting. 
    At this time many consumers may not be thinking about investing in LEDs to save carbon emissions, but Stephen highlights how LED lighting can easily pay for itself within just one year thanks to the huge energy savings.

    Has the UK Government botched its energy strategy?

    Has the UK Government botched its energy strategy?

    Happy Earth Day! Today is a day that we should be celebrating the planet that we live on, and looking to ensure that it has a future for years to come. In fact, you’ll likely see celebrations from Governments around the world as they proclaim their commitment to saving our planet from the disasters that await us if we don’t act on climate change.

    The UK Government is likely to be amongst the most vocal. Boris Johnson made a big deal of his Government’s commitment to fighting climate change, and heralded the UK’s leadership at COP26 as a turning point for this planet.

    However, is the Government of Boris Johnson actually leading when it comes to climate change? Well, if you were to take a look at the recent energy strategy released under his premiership, you may be having some serious doubts.

    In the latest episode of Powered On, join Jordan O’Brien and Kayleigh Hutchins as they cut through the noise surrounding the energy strategy and work out whether it will actually help the UK out of the ongoing energy crisis.

    You find Powered On on all popular podcast streaming services, such as Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and much more. As always, feel free to get involved with the show by emailing us at hello@electricalreview.co.uk. We'll be back with another episode in two weeks.

    Is an EV charging regulator needed? Ofcharge it is!

    Is an EV charging regulator needed? Ofcharge it is!

    The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders has called for the establishment of a new Government regulator that will oversee the rollout of electric vehicle charging infrastructure throughout the UK. The group has even come up with a name for this new regulator, dubbed ‘Ofcharge’. 
    Despite the on-the-nose name, is this regulator actually needed? Well, we will discuss this very subject on the latest episode of the Powered On podcast, assessing the current state of EV charging in the UK and what changes need to be made to ensure equitable access to these charge points.

    What does it mean to be green?

    What does it mean to be green?

    In his hit song, Kermit the Frog asks ‘Do you know what's green?’ It’s a pertinent question to ask, especially with the world committing to net zero within a few decades. But in order to achieve those goals, we’re going to need to switch to green technologies, right? Well, as the lyrics go, it’s not easy being green. 
    The European Union has positioned itself as a leader in going green, but it appears even it agrees with the Muppet’s bleak assessment. The political bloc has found itself between a rock and a hard place with various different interests to keep satisfied, and rather than admitting defeat, it has announced plans to alter the very meaning of the word green. 
    In this week’s Powered On, we will assess the European Union’s plans to classify natural gas and nuclear as green energy sources, and ask what does it mean to be green?

    Was Cop26 a success or a total cop out?

    Was Cop26 a success or a total cop out?

    The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, more commonly known as Cop26, has finally wrapped up and while it was the largest and sixth longest to date, was it a success?

    That's what we will discuss on this week's episode of Powered On, chewing through the fat and analysing whether any of the new promises will actually result in moving the needle.

    The climate crisis is a train hurtling towards the end of the line, and governments around the world need to put the brakes on before the train runs out of track. However, despite the UK's leadership and Boris Johnson's hope that Cop26 would be 'the beginning of the end for climate change', things are rarely ever as black and white as they seem.

    So join us for the second episode of season two as Jordan O'Brien and Kayleigh Hutchins explore Cop26 and answer the question: was Cop26 a success or a total cop out?
