Hosted by Lucy Siegle, the new series showcases how the UK energy networks are supporting decarbonisation and getting beyond the headlines through in-depth and informal discussion. 

With Net Zero hurtling towards us at great pace, this episode examines how we are tackling a more sustainable future for all.

We’re around a year on from the pledges made at COP26, the UK’s Green Recovery initiative is well under way and by next year, Britain is aiming to blend up to 20 per cent hydrogen into its gas networks. So now is the time to continue to unlock new insight and understand further the realities of both the challenges and opportunities ahead.

The guests are Rhian Kelly, Chief Sustainability Officer at National Grid Electricity and ENA's own Director of Gas, James Earl.

Titled 'Unlock & Understand: Achieving a more sustainable future', the podcast is available now on Spotify and Podbean.

More information is also available via ENA's new Next for Net Zero landing page
