Powered On, brought to you by Electrical Review, is a podcast designed to discuss the burning topics in the electrical industry. We’re here to educate, inform and hopefully share some laughs. Unlike other podcasts in the electrical industry, we want to give you a little bit of personality, alongside the usual informative gossip and debates that we'll be hosting. So sit back and get Powered On with Electrical Review.
EV for EVeryone
In this episode titled, ‘EV for EVeryone?’ contributing editor Jordan O’Brien (proud owner of an electric vehicle) attempts to knock editor Claire Fletcher (owner of decidedly non-electric vehicle) off the proverbial EV fence. Will he succeed? Give us a listen and find out. You never know, you might even learn something yourself.
Despite the adoption of electric vehicles featuring as a key part of the UK government’s 10-Point-Plan to ‘build back greener from the pandemic’, there is still widespread misinformation, and general trepidation when it comes to making the switch from an ICE (internal combustion engine) vehicle, to an electric one. After all, most of us have grown up with the former.
That said, with a ban on petrol and diesel vehicles coming into place as of 2030 (meaning you will no longer be able to buy a new ICE vehicle) people are going to have to wrap their heads round the prospect of EV’s pretty damn quick, lest they buy second hand until the ICE vehicle well runs dry.
From range anxiety to exploding batteries, EV’s still get a pretty bad wrap in the mainstream media, which is doing nothing to help quash public concern, or the planet for that matter.
But, as human beings, generally, we don’t like change, but change doesn’t always have to be a bad thing. In this episode, we go over many of the common misconceptions surrounding electric vehicles, ask the questions we actually want to know the answers to, and find out what it’s really like to own an EV day to day from someone that knows.
As always, you can get in touch with us with your feedback, suggestions for discussion and general comments via our dedicated podcast email firstname.lastname@example.org, it’d be great to know if any petrol heads have been swayed (even slightly).
Children of the (Green) Revolution
What has the UK Government done to achieve net zero by 2050? That's the question we're going to be asking in this episode of Powered On.
There have been countless promises and the proclamation of a Green Revolution, but what action has been taken to actually achieve our net zero goal?
We'll chew through the fat, exploring the promise of offshore wind powering every home by 2030, what Government incentives are out there for those wishing to be green, and the disaster that is the Green Homes Grant.
New Grids on the Block
Powered On, a brand-new podcast from Electrical Review, is finally here.
In this episode, we’re discussing all things National Grid and the upcoming target of Net Zero. We’ll look at whether Ofgem is right about further independence for National Grid ESO, or if it’s fine just the way it is.
Claire Fletcher, Editor of Electrical Review, and Jordan O’Brien, Contributing Editor, will also discuss what Net Zero means for the UK. Could we be seeing the end of the National Grid as we know it?
As this is our very first episode, firstly, we will get better; secondly we want to make sure you’re involved in shaping the future of the show. You can get in touch with us with your feedback, suggestions and general comments at email@example.com.
We’ll be back in two weeks with another exciting instalment of Powered On, where we will be discussing the Green Revolution and the Government’s current strategy (or lack thereof as the case may be). We hope you enjoy the episode!
