The Interchange: Recharged podcast is a leading global clean tech podcast that has been running since 2017. Each fortnight we invite experts and industry leaders from the world of clean tech and energy to join in a deep dive about their tech, the future of their sector, funding and policy impacts.

We aim to provide a platform for start-ups, new companies and organisations who are innovating and solving real world problems in the energy transition. Our listeners are energy experts, industry evangelists who’re interested in companies that do pioneering work to accelerate the transition.

Our host David Banmiller takes our audience through a 45-60 minute exploration of the revolutionary tech these companies are developing, asking about the history, the ongoing work and the vision our guests have for their business. The conversation often turns to funding and policy as well.

    A New Way of Procuring Energy

    A New Way of Procuring Energy

    We talk a lot on the podcast about the technology that powers the latest innovations in energy supply. But what about a solution to the problem of energy procurement?

    A few episodes ago, we spoke to the Founder and Executive Director of WattTime, a nonprofit tech company that uses the power of data to reduce emissions at the consumer level. By using more energy when the grid is powered by renewables and less when it's relying on fossil fuels, WattTime automatically manages your home energy usage based on a smart metering system.

    This week we look one step along the energy supply chain to where we source our energy. Our guest is Founder and CEO Ryan Peusch. Ryan’s company, Zentility, uses data and an advanced UI to simplify and streamline the energy buying process for businesses. Zentility links energy suppliers to customers through an automated contract management system.

    David looks at the technology in more detail with Ryan, exploring why it could help businesses across the US make smarter decisions with their energy contracts and lead to a higher concentration of renewables powering our cities.

    What are the long-term trends for energy prices amid a global fuel crisis? Can the Zentility platform alleviate price woes for customers? Find out right here, on the Interchange: Recharged

    How Wave Power Can Supplement Wind & Solar

    How Wave Power Can Supplement Wind & Solar

    The energy transition is a machine with hundreds of moving parts. The problems we face in getting to net zero will be solved by a combination of technology, policy and consumer action. The cleantech sector is awash with technological marvels. Today, we look at a company with huge potential – a tech company that utilises the power of waves.

    On the podcast: how harnessing that power can fill in a crucial gap in the energy transition puzzle, when solar and wind can’t deliver enough power on their own. David is joined by Jan Skjoldhammer, from NoviOcean. NoviOcean has developed a wave energy converter which it says can deliver lower energy costs and supplement the solar grid.

    The Ever-Changing Role of PPAs In The Energy Transition

    The Ever-Changing Role of PPAs In The Energy Transition

    9 months ago The Interchange spoke with Harald Overholm from Alight. Alight is one of the leading providers of Power Purchase Agreements in Europe. Since then we’ve seen massive changes in the market, rampant inflation and stock market turmoil.

    To analyse the changes currently underway in the PPA sector, David is joined by Luca Pedretti, from PexaPark. PexaPark use unique data sets to offer pricing across multiple European markets. 

    The discussion moves from talk of price volatility and how it can be managed, to the future of the renewable sector and what needs to be done to mitigate the negative effects of inflation. There are lessons for the US from Europe. Can a PPA hedge against inflation? 

    Luca says we need to find a way to incentivise and integrate private capital. How do we do this? Dive into the episode to find out.

    Green Tech Investments, Green Washing and SPACS

    Green Tech Investments, Green Washing and SPACS

    To continue to accelerate the energy transition investment in clean tech companies is essential. We’ve seen more growth in the last 5 years than the last 100 with trillions of dollars flooding the market in the interests of accelerating the path to Net Zero.

    On today's Interchange, David is joined by Matthew Nordan for an eye-opening conversation. Matthew is the General Partner of Azolla Ventures, a venture capital firm that invests in early-stage tech companies with the potential for gigaton-scale climate impact. Azolla have unique evaluation criteria; gigaton scale climate impact, the principle of additionality and only investing in cases where they can see bullet point level seed milestones.

    In this episode, David and Matthew discuss the current investor appetite for green tech investments, how the sector deals with green washing and whether SPACS are still an effective tool.
