One of the most pressing questions of our time is surely, how might we protect the planet for future generations? What can we do, not just as individuals, but as a society to move to a more sustainable future that will preserve our home? The world is shifting towards more sustainable practices. Renewable energy sources and packaging are a start, but progress is too slow. The linear economy model that has been the staple of business and society to date… is a model that no longer suits. A more circular system needs to be adopted not just by large businesses and governments, but by everyone in their day to day lives. In this episode of The Big Question, Detria Williamson asks Constantin Schwaab, Wirelane CEO and Franz Blach, IDEO Alum… How might we empower society to move rapidly towards a cleaner future? Constantin and Franz discuss how we might implement not only service and design solutions to help shift society's mindset on a tangible level, but also on a psychological level for the betterment of our future.

In this episode, Kaitlyn Allen talks with Jason Roe. Jason is CEO & President of EcoVapor Recovery Systems, a company dedicated to helping industries improve their environmental and financial sustainability with innovative technology. Prior to joining EcoVapor, Jason was CEO of Avitas, a Baker Hughes venture focused on emissions monitoring and detection strategies enabled through robotics, AI, and digital techniques. Before that, he served as President and Chief Executive Officer of XACT Downhole Telemetry. Jason received his B.S. in Finance from the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Flaring and venting of natural gas during oil and gas production operations results in the release of methane, one of the most potent greenhouse gases. Sometimes, flaring is necessary for safety, such as to prevent blowouts. But routine flaring is problematic for a few reasons: harmful releases of methane to the environment, waste of a non-renewable resource, and loss of revenue. Companies are looking for ways to reduce or eliminate routine flaring, as is prescribed by the World Economic Forum, to reduce the impact of methane releases to the environment, reduce scope 1 emissions, and sell instead of waste a product that currently heats homes and powers stoves. Listen as Kaitlyn and Jason discuss Ecovapor's technology which helps oil and gas companies to reduce their Scope 1 emissions (direct emissions from company-controlled resources). Their conversation also touches on: That natural gas is still a fuel source in the International Energy Agency (IEA) Sustainable Development Scenario, so we need to make it operationally carbon neutral. Shared technology from the oil field across other forms of energy Renewable natural gas How carbon reduction goals can go hand in hand with poverty reduction goals. The information shared in this episode is solutions-focused with the intention to educate on how we can all make the most impact, especially as we enter in the new year.

How much do you know about the White House? Ruhani takes us behind the scenes to inform us about fascinating and historical details that most Americans are unaware of. Dr. Jill Biden's Christmas décor this year is inspired by the small acts of kindness and experiences that lifted our spirits throughout the pandemic, rooms throughout the White House are decorated to reflect the Gifts from the Heart that unite us all. After a tour of the building, she talks about the Paris Agreement and COP 26 Climate Change Conference. Co-host, Nihal, continues the conversation with information about renewable energy. Renewable Energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources such as water, sunlight, wind, tides, waves, and geothermal energy. Renewable energy plays an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Using renewable energy can help to reduce energy imports and reduce fossil fuel use, which is the largest source of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions. Nihal gives examples on how teens and young adults can reduce their carbon footprint. In segment three, our Express Yourself! poet, Sharanya shares her original poem called “The Wind, The Water, The Earth”. She compares becoming a competent writer to renewable energy. Renewable energy uses what the Earth has already provided to harvest energy. To become a better writer, the first step is to read or listen to pre-existing literary works.

I've said it a lot from the pulpit of SunCast, but there really is a LOT that the Renewable energy sector can still learn from the traditional power sector. The fundamentals of how the power sector works can often feel like a lost art. Today's guest, Mitchell Samuelian, recounts the many stories and examples where he helped fill those gaps in skills and knowledge from his early days in Renewables as the first O&M Hire at First Solar to his roles leading site maintenance & operations at NRG, Clearway and more. And, in so doing, I'd like to introduce you to a brand new company he's leading, Tonian Renewables! When we recorded this episode, Mitch's newest venture didn't even have a name yet. And the leaders of this new O&M rollup are some of the players that have helped make sure large solar and wind projects stay online in the industry for awhile now. Mitch is the operations glue that binds them all together. He has a fascinating “how I got here” story, constantly showing up to manage O&M for some of the world's most iconic solar plants, recruiting talent in record time, engaging his well-oiled team in trainings and professional development, and with nothing but sincere humility, graciously accepting the next biggest project. Which is how he came to be CEO of this newest venture, because it sounds like he's got one more Ivanpah-sized venture in his bag of tricks before retirement. Ladies and Gentlemen, LISTEN NOW to this honest and engaging conversations with the CEO of what may be the most exciting new O&M startup in the business. -- There's a lot we dig into today, so sit back and enjoy When it's done, I'd love if you'd leave us a 5 ⭐ rating & review and it's never been easier: www.ratethispodcast.com/suncast And, find me on Linkedin and let me know what you thought of this episode!

Have you heard? Parenting kids is hard! Yeah, the new study just came in, from me, and it's true #science. As parents, the number 1 thing you need to do is keep a united front. To do that you need to be, y'know, "united." How do you unite after all the screaming and crying (not to mention what your kids are doing)? You have a date night. It's a time to reconnect. But more importantly, it's time alone, together. Y'know, to strategize how to keep those little buggers in place. Some of the most important advances in history have come from a date night. Polio vaccine? Date Night. Renewable energy? Date night. Contraception? Date night. Mike and heather (@momandburied) get into all of it, since they're married, and have kids, and a podcast. Enjoy!

In this episode of Smart Energy Voices, host John Failla is joined by Mona Dajani, Global Co-Head of Energy, Infrastructure, Mobility, Renewables & Water at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP. Mona is a prolific dealmaker in the renewable energy space and is a highly regarded, well-recognized attorney. You'll find her extensive experience and unique perspective enlightening. Listen to learn more. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in... Mona's journey to renewable energy [03:57] Mona's most challenging deal [13:25] Major trends in renewable energy deals [17:24] What's happening in storage? [32:17] Important factors to accelerate the market [37:40] What drives Mona's passion? [44:20] Mona's work at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP Pillsbury's energy and infrastructure group covers clean energy, hydrogen, ESG, sustainable finance, and anything to do with clean tech. Mona is dual qualified and represents companies in North America as well as Europe. Many of the deals she works on are incredibly challenging and most come with unique difficulties. One of Mona's most challenging deals was during COVID because it involved companies from three continents that couldn't meet in person, but Mona is an expert at making a deal work and negotiated it successfully. She is unique because she not only counsels clients on legal aspects of business but also on the commercial and economic aspects. The future of clean energy The need for clean energy is accelerating, driven by COVID and the Biden administration, as well as an increase in decarbonization goals from many utilities and businesses. Renewable energy has been focused heavily on solar and wind, but other technologies, including advanced battery storage, offshore wind, and hydrogen are moving toward commercialization. Mona has seen a lot of deal activity across the value chain, with many different stakeholders consolidating positions. Major oil and gas companies and governments are also setting ambitious climate goals, and there's more federal support here in the U.S. and globally. Some countries have mandates or stimulus and tax incentives to capture more renewable energy deals, especially in the power, oil, and gas utility industries. The potential of hydrogen Hydrogen has been around for over 100 years. Many industry stakeholders are currently considering hydrogen production and storage projects, in addition to wind and solar, as part of their decarbonization strategy. The reason it's taking off now, at least from a domestic standpoint, is because of the push for decarbonization, particularly net-zero goals. Mona has been working on hydrogen in Europe for a while, but in the past year has recently been working in the United States with blending hydrogen and natural gas to support utilities, pipelines, and oil and gas majors' decarbonization efforts. While clean hydrogen is expensive now, it can be equated to what solar was 15 or 20 years ago. When a country promotes hydrogen strategies with incentives, there will be a proliferation of deals. Mona is currently working on deals that combine renewables and hydrogen, as combining many different contributing elements creates a hydrogen hub, which is a favorite pathway for how clean hydrogen usage will develop.

But a last-ditch effort from India and China to water down pledges to phase out coal has led some to consider COP26 a failure. Yes, COP26 could have achieved more but is this agreement one that could potentially be seen as a strong foundation on which the world can build for the future? To debate the motion we heard from Bim Afolami, MP for Hitchin and Harpenden and Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Renewable and Sustainable Energy; Clover Hogan, climate activist, researcher on eco-anxiety and the founding Executive Director of Force of Nature; Caroline Lucas, former leader of the Green Party and MP for Brighton Pavilion; and Adair Turner, Chair of the Energy Transitions Commission. Chair for this week's debate was Helen Czerski, one of the UK's most popular science presenters.
