On this episode, Dr David Reiner, a political scientist and a senior lecturer at the Judge Business School in the University of Cambridge joins me to discuss the UK’s energy policy, its priorities as it transitions to a net zero economy, the new 10 point action plan, E-Mobility, its strategies in Carbon Capture and storage, the upcoming COP26 and a lot more.
The 10 point plan for a green industrial revolution is a good start, is a good first down payment but we need more such acts going forward. but will it be enough to match the scale of effort required to address the impact of climate change? Well, maybe or maybe not only time and the details in the plan for each individual sectors which is expected to come up over the next couple of years will give a clear picture of the progress.
