    Microsoft’s Carbon-Negative Gambit

    Microsoft’s Carbon-Negative Gambit

    This week: Microsoft is setting a new standard for corporate climate targets.

    The technology company promised to remove all of the carbon that it’s ever put in the atmosphere -- going back to when it was founded in an Albuquerque garage in 1975. 

    That includes $1 billion in carbon removal technologies and methods. Can it pull off such an ambitious plan? And will it force other corporates to follow?

    Then, a landmark climate case. Twenty-one young people who sued the federal government for the right to live in a stable climate prevailed and prevailed and prevailed…until they lost. A judge agreed with their case, but said the courts weren’t the place to remedy climate change. What does it mean for future litigation?

    Plus, we have a new member of the gang we’re going to meet. It’s Ingrid Lobet, our senior editor. Make sure to follow her on Twitter.

    The World’s Biggest Capitalist Says Climate Is ‘Reshaping Finance’

    The World’s Biggest Capitalist Says Climate Is ‘Reshaping Finance’

    The world’s largest asset manager, BlackRock, is suddenly putting sustainability and climate risk at the center of its investment strategy. 

    “Investors are increasingly...recognizing that climate risk is investment risk. These questions are driving a profound reassessment of risk and asset values. And because capital markets pull future risk forward, we will see changes in capital allocation more quickly than we see changes to the climate itself,” wrote BlackRock CEO Larry Fink in his yearly investment letter.

    BlackRock manages over $7 trillion in assets. This new strategy could have a wide impact on the world of finance -- and put climate risk at the top of investor considerations.

    Plus, activists are targeting banks like Chase and Citibank by hitting them on the consumer finance side. We check in on the divestment movement as it gains momentum.

    Then, a look at some lesser-known, but formidable greenhouse gases: refrigerants. How much a problem are they?

    Finally, California looks beyond lithium-ion batteries. The state is looking to fund the next ideas in energy storage. What are those technologies and how will they be deployed?

    Will Australia's Hellish Fires Influence Climate Politics?

    Will Australia's Hellish Fires Influence Climate Politics?

    This week, a look at the bushfires in Australia — their impact to the country, to the grid, and to politics of climate.

    Then, a big change could be coming to a foundational federal policy in America. Are the proposed changes to PURPA a thoughtful response to market conditions and cheap renewables, or a political play?

    Finally, we learn to code. Joe Biden is the latest democrat to push the idea that laid-off miners should learn to code. Why did it spark so much derision?

    Presenting: The Deep Decarbonization Draft

    Presenting: The Deep Decarbonization Draft

    We have some bonus listening as we close out the year!

    We present one of our most popular episodes of The Interchange: The Deep Decarbonization Draft.

    It's like fantasy sports for energy nerds. The premise is simple: Shayle and Stephen choose their teams of decarbonization technologies and methods, and then pit them against each other to determine who’s best at saving the planet.

    Go subscribe to The Interchange anywhere you get your podcasts. It's the perfect compliment to The Energy Gang.

    Happy New Year!

    Reflections on the Last 10 Years, Projections for the Next 10

    Reflections on the Last 10 Years, Projections for the Next 10

    We’re closing out the decade this week with a retrospective. 

    We have been doing this show since 2013. So we are going to share some of our top story lines in energy and cleantech of the last 10 years — many of which played out while we were doing this show.

    We’ll start with some personal retrospectives. What was consuming us back in 2009? How did that story shake out?

    Then we’ll choose the most important stories that defined the teens. Katherine will choose the top policy trend, Jigar will choose the top business trend, and Stephen will choose the top tech trend.

    Finally, we’ll look ahead to 2030 and beyond. What needs to happen in policy, business, technology to “win” the decade?=

    If you’re looking for more listening over the holidays, check out our year-end episode of The Interchange.

    Watt It Takes: The Founder-Engineer Turning CO2 Into Usable Stuff

    Watt It Takes: The Founder-Engineer Turning CO2 Into Usable Stuff

    This week on Watt It Takes: Emily Kirsch sits down with Dr. Etosha Cave, the co-founder and chief science officer of Opus 12.

    Opus 12 is a team of engineers, electrochemists and materials scientists working on a technology that converts carbon dioxide into useable products. They are developing a metal catalyst that can turn CO2 into synthetic gas for fuels and ethylene for plastics.

    If the tech works at commercial scale, it would be a vital solution for slashing CO2 from industrial sources. The company has brought in about $20 million in funding. 

    In this interview, Etosha talks about the inspiration for the technology, which came from her love of space and desire to go to Mars.

    She talks about being a founder who’s also a black woman, and how that’s influenced her relationships with other people in energy.

    And she talks about where Opus 12’s tech development stands.
