Principle of using energy without compromising the needs of future generations
In this episode, Kaitlyn Allen talks with Stephen Brown, Founder and CEO of the Clean Energy Fund of Texas, Inc., (TxCEF), which is focused on making the emerging green economy affordable and just for all Texans. TxCEF believes that an equitable transition to clean energy will help to mitigate the impacts of the climate crisis, eliminate energy poverty, create green jobs and catalyze economic development opportunities in historically under-resourced communities. Stephen's career spans over 20 years of government relations, public affairs, and energy sustainability experience. He was the 2014 Democratic Nominee for Texas Railroad Commissioner, making him the youngest African American to win a statewide primary in Texas. Steve is also currently the President of Capital Assets Energy LLC, a successful clean energy development consulting firm specializing in financing retrofits of commercial, non-profit, and multi-family properties with energy-efficient and renewable energy improvements. Listen as Kaitlyn and Stephen discuss the clean energy transition, emphasizing the impact on marginalized communities. Their conversation provides a solid foundation for this topic, including the key stakeholders and financial considerations, including green energy investment opportunities and wholesale lines of credit. This episode highlights the intersection between the ‘E' and the ‘S' of ESG. It reminds us of the challenges we face as a global community to ensure that no one is ‘left behind' as we adjust to meet current energy demands. Many of us may be familiar with situations when this was not the case; the information shared gives us hope that all communities can become winners in pursuing clean, sustainable energy sources.

In this episode of the Power for All podcast, our Africa Communication Director, Matuba Mahlatjie talks with Laura Williamson, who is responsible for directing the membership and institutional partnership work at REN21 on their recently launched Renewables 2022 Global Status Report. Laura notes that while there is the ambition and desire for energy transition, it is not being backed by the necessary action and policies to make that shift happen.
There are different ways to generate power and electricity, one being coal mining. But this method has a significant environmental impact, such as soil erosion, loss of natural habitat, and pollution. After Brett came home from college, his community decided it was time to start a transition. They chose Brett to help build a company that provides clean energy, benefits the livelihood of the local community, and lessens the impact of climate change. Brett Isaac is a renewable energy entrepreneur, business strategist, and the Founder and Co-CEO at Navajo Power, a native-owned public benefit corporation that develops utility-scale clean energy projects on tribal lands and maximizes the benefits for the local communities. Brett is a member of the Navajo Nation and a skilled communicator who has worked with and collaborated with the local community to have an equitable and sustainable clean energy transition. Navajo Power has the vision to bring clean energy to communities in a different way. They work intentionally to bring and maintain power to households with sustainable, clean energy. To date, they have deployed over 200 off-grid solar systems to serve households without grid electricity. In this episode, Cory and Brett talk about making a transition to clean and equitable energy. Brett shares his foundational interest in power, particularly in clean energy, the struggles making the transition, the issues of equity, power structure and system, and the impact of the transition on the livelihood and welfare of the local community. ⭐ SPONSORED BY: The Greater Good & The Social Good Network -- --
The sentencing of Ngụy Thị Khanh, Vietnam's highest-profile environmental voice, to two years in prison has sparked questions about whether Western governments should help pay for the country's commitment to ditching coal. And it highlights how human rights issues and geopolitical concerns are dividing Western officials as they pivot toward trying to broker climate deals with polluting countries around the world.

It's important to know the difference between international natural gas versus U.S. natural gas (/NG), says Adam Rozencwajg. He monitors recent trends in energy, highlighting movement in crude oil (/CL), and noting that natural gas is much cheaper in the U.S. than it is internationally. He discusses opportunities in clean energy investing. He goes over how we need heavy-duty clean energy more than wind and solar. He talks about how he thinks nuclear energy will be the next big push. Tune in to find out more.
The push to decarbonize electricity production in the U.S. focuses heavily on solar and wind generation. But delivering reliable energy from intermittent resource will require an upgrade in energy storage capabilities.This episode of Grid Talk features Don Sadoway who is the John F. Elliott Professor of Materials Chemistry at MIT. He's one of the leading experts on emerging battery products and at the helm of about a half dozen startups ready to speed deployment of the most promising approaches into the marketplace.“We have to deal with the intermittency. And nobody wants green electricity that's only available part-time; they want it all the time, so that means storage.”That's where the liquid metal battery comes in. Sadoway will explain why he believes it will revolutionize battery storage.“The aluminum/sulfur battery is no cobalt, no nickel, no manganese, no volatile flammable electrolyte, no graphite, forget the silicon. This is no lithium.”One of his companies is set to release its first product in about a year. When people see it working, things could really take off. “A liquid metal battery could be in the basement of every one of the skyscrapers in Manhattan.”Professor Sadoway has been at MIT for 44 years. His research seeks to establish the scientific underpinnings for technologies that make efficient use of energy and natural resources in an environmentally sound manner. This spans engineering applications and the supportive fundamental science. The overarching theme of his work is electrochemistry in nonaqueous media.He holds the following degrees:B.A.Sc., Engineering Science, University of TorontoM.A.Sc., Chemical Metallurgy, University of TorontoPh.D., Chemical Metallurgy, University of Toronto

As nations scramble to wean off of Russian energy, the U.S. has committed to supporting its European allies in their quest for energy security. At the same time, American consumers are confronting the highest rate of inflation in 40 years, paying more at the pump and for their utility bills than ever before.These trends have led to an increase in U.S. oil and gas production — and calls for even greater market expansion. But this shift could have serious implications for the clean energy transition. On this episode of Political Climate, we wrestle with how to walk the fine line between meeting today's immediate energy demands, maintaining lower prices for American consumers and achieving our climate goals.This is the first episode in a monthly podcast series we're calling “The Arsenal of Clean Energy: Strengthening the Bonds of Clean Energy, Innovation, and Sovereignty.”“Arsenal of Clean Energy” is made possible by Third Way, a center-left think tank championing modern solutions to the most challenging problems in US policy, including the economy, national security and climate change.

An expert in international trade policy discusses the Biden Administration's use of the Defense Production Act, and tariff restrictions, to build a competitive US solar supply chain. --- In early June the Biden Administration invoked the Defense Production Act in an effort to rebuild America's domestic solar energy manufacturing supply. Simultaneously, the Administration announced that it will prohibit for two years new tariffs on imports of solar cells from four Southeast Asian countries that are under investigation for illegal trade practices involving their solar industries. Through these complementary policies, the Administration aims to accelerate solar power development in the US in the near term, and ultimately to displace solar imports and strengthen US energy security. The policies are controversial, and have implications for domestic industry and the pace of decarbonization, and the rule of law. Robert Scott, Senior Economist and Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Research at the Economic Policy Institute, offers a closer look at the Defense Production Act and its potential to spur the development of a robust solar supply chain in the US. Scott examines the policies and trade dynamics that led to China's dominance in the global solar supply chain, and how the DPA and related trade and industrial policies might create the foundation for a competitive domestic solar manufacturing industry. Robert Scott is Senior Economist and Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Research at the Economic Policy Institute.

#Bitcoin #Reparations #Drake Beyond lowering the carbon footprint, mining Bitcoin is perhaps the biggest catalyst to clean green energy innovation. The Proof of Work(PoW) concept outlined in the Bitcoin white paper describes a method to transmute energy into computational power than into Bitcoin. Although this initial digital gold rush has put strains on power grids across the globe, Bitcoin miners have since adapted and sustainable energy usage for BTC mining has grown to nearly 60%.

Despite remarkable breakthroughs in clean energy deployment, there has been little progress made on the thorny issue of what to do with solar panels, wind turbines, batteries and other equipment when they reach the end of their useful life. Without proper recycling or reuse, these materials could do real harm to ecosystems and communities. Failure to effectively recycle could also threaten the long-term viability of a clean energy economy that is already facing strains in the supply of some raw materials, such as lithium and cobalt. In this Newsflash episode, host Julia Pyper and producer Maria Virginia Olano are joined by guest Emily Burlinghaus, who has been researching clean energy recycling as a fellow with the Atlantic Council's Global Energy Center and the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies in Potsdam, Germany. As part of Canary Media's dedicated week of coverage on how to make clean energy cleaner, the three discuss opportunities and roadblocks in the emerging field of recycling renewable energy assets.Listen and subscribe to Political Climate on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher or pretty much wherever you get podcasts!

The hydrogen debate has evolved over the past two decades, shifting from how hydrogen could be used in the auto industry toward its potential use in hard-to-decarbonize sectors such as trucking, aviation, shipping and energy-intensive heavy industry. Hydrogen projects are being announced and developed all over the world. Just this week, the U.S. government committed $8 billion in infrastructure funding to build out clean hydrogen hubs across the country. But not all hydrogen is created equal. Is it really a miracle fuel for deep decarbonization or is it an over-hyped climate solution that could lock in fossil fuel use?On this episode of Political Climate, hosts Julia Pyper and Shane Skelton are joined by Rachel Fakhry, senior advocate for the climate and clean energy program at the Natural Resources Defense Council, to talk through the promises and challenges of the hydrogen economy. Plus, the hosts talk through President Biden's new executive order to halt the threat of new tariffs on solar panels and boost domestic clean energy manufacturing.
