“New Energy Chinwag” (Podcast Series)


The ‘New Energy Chinwag’ podcast series

 
chinwag: noun. “a long and pleasant conversation between friends”
[example: “We had a good chinwag over a bottle of wine…”]
 
In some topic areas, offshore wind in particular, I work together with renewable power project veteran Charley Rattan as ‘Astute New Energy‘. We chat regularly about issues within the energy industry, particularly the transition towards low-carbon sources, and it seemed only natural to start recording some of these conversations – and then to share them with the wider world. 
 

Thus came into existence the “New Energy Chinwag” series of podcasts!
