Can conserving and planting trees help address climate change? And if so, to what effect? As Shell launches its nature-based solution programme in the UK, The Energy Podcast looks at the debate.
Presented by Kunal Dutta and Katharine Kerr. Featuring Nathalie Seddon, Oxford University; Duncan McLaren, Lancaster University; Sylvo Thijsen, Staatsbosbeheer & Alex Nevill, Shell.
Could Shell do more when it comes to tackling climate change? Why doesn't the company simply stop producing oil and gas? And is there enough understanding of the challenges of a transition to lower-carbon energy? The Energy Podcast puts some of the big questions to one of Shell's most senior leaders.
Presented by Kunal Dutta. With Maarten Wetselaar, Integrated Gas & New Energies Director at Shell (pictured).
Episode 4 - Blockchain: has the hype peaked?
It was once hailed as the technology that would change everything. From banking to shipping, retail and, of course, energy. But has the hype surrounding Blockchain now peaked? If so, what is left? Could Blockchain change the energy industry? And, before we even get there, what on earth is it?
Presented by Kunal Dutta. Featuring JoJo Hubbard, Electron (pictured); Scott Kessler, LO3 Energy; David Gerard, author Attack of the 50 Foot Blockchain & Judith Durkin, Shell.
It has been billed as hugely important in the fight against climate change. But what exactly is carbon capture and storage? How can it help meet the Paris Agreement goals? And why are there fewer than 30 working projects around the world?
Presented by Kunal Dutta. Featuring Stuart Haszeldine, University of Edinburgh (UK); Simon Holmes à Court, Melbourne University (Australia); Anne Halladay, Quest & David Hone, Shell.
It is the most abundant element in the universe. When produced using renewable energy, it creates no greenhouse gas emissions. So why aren't we hearing more about hydrogen? And why aren't we all driving hydrogen cars?
Presented by Kunal Dutta. Featuring John Hunt, Toyota; Ben Madden, Element Energy; Matthew Rooney, Institute of Mechanical Engineers & Matthew Tipper, Shell.
With more electric cars and energy storage opportunities, a global race to develop battery technology is underway. How quickly is technology progressing? What is needed to breakthrough? And why should we care about batteries anyway?
Presented by Kunal Dutta. Featuring Billy Wu, Imperial College London; Brillpower; Carlton Cummins, Acceleron (pictured); Marek Cubik, Fluence & James Frith, Bloomberg.
