Energy podcast continues with CEO of Climate Change Committee interview
A new Strathclyde-led podcast, funded through the UKRI £10million Energy-REV project, features an interview with Chris Stark, CEO of the Climate Change Committee.
The EnergyREV consortium comprises over 60 researchers from 22 universities who are working together to tackle the challenges around smart local energy systems from an interdisciplinary and whole-systems viewpoint.
Dr Matt Hannon is EnergyREV co-Investigator for local energy system businesses and financial practices, and policy, regulation and market enablers for local energy systems. He and Dr Rebecca Ford, Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellow in Politics and EnergyREV co-investigator for interdisciplinary knowledge synthesis, are the researchers behind the podcast which aims to highlight climate action in the local area with an eye to COP26 taking place in Glasgow in November this year. The podcast’s aim is to inform people about the types of local action that can be taken to tackle climate change, with a specific focus on smart, local energy innovation.
Matt, Director of Research and Senior Lecturer at the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship, said, “Our latest podcast, Episode 5, is arguably the highest profile yet. We interview Chris Stark, who is CEO of the Climate Change Committee, which scrutinises the government’s net-zero carbon strategy and offers advice on setting its legally binding carbon budgets.”
