Robert speaks to James Kelloway from National Grid ESO to find out more about their green energy success story in this new episode.
The UK’s national grid has been utterly transformed in the last 8 years with coal making way for wind and solar, and as this is only the beginning of the shift to green energy, watch as James Kelloway, Energy Intelligence Manager, from National Grid ESO explains how the UK became genuinely world-leading. Because “we are the first generation who understand climate change, and the last who can do anything about it”, where we are going next.
Robert talks to James about how renewables are overtaking fossil fuels, supply and demand, artificial intelligence, vehicle-to-grid, batteries, negative pricing, nuclear, exporting renewable energy, electrifying heat and transport, and the future increase in wind, solar and tidal.
