Series – The Future Of Energy
Part One – The Future Of Our Energy Sources
The Future Of Energy series has been designed to offer multiple perspectives from various guests within the energy sector.
Comprising of three separate episodes and three separate guests, we cover the evolving energy market, from the grid and our energy providers, right through to the residential electrician, who’s out there installing solar panels on homes.
Throughout this series, we talk about fossil fuels, solar energy, wind and hydro energy, even nuclear. They are three different conversations at three different levels but with one common theme in understanding ‘the future of energy.
In this episode, I’m kicking off the series with a conversation with a friend of mine, Andrew who has spent the better part of his professional life as an energy trader.
Energy traders are basically in charge of controlling the energy market that supplies our cities and communities, meaning that when it comes to energy sources, they have to really have their finger on the pulse.
In an environment that is still very much driving the majority of our energy from fossil fuels like coal and oil, it was interesting to hear about some of the disruptive technologies that are starting to make a footprint.
I hope you enjoy part one of this series. In following episodes you’re going to hear from a gentleman that works with solar installations on a community scale and a Sydney based electrician that installs solar units on homes.
