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.
This episode takes on the pivotal topic of the role of transportation in accelerating our journey to Net Zero. Decarbonisation will need a significant societal shift, and the why and how we travel is going to look very different within a decade.
This week we examine how the networks are playing their role in reducing in transport emissions, including electric and hydrogen vehicle innovation.
The guests are Matt Hindle, Head of Net Zero and Sustainability at Wales and West Utilities and Florentine Roy from UKPN, who is a Project Lead for the Optimise Prime project and one of UKPN's leading experts on EVs.
More information is also available via ENA's new Next for Net Zero landing page.
