Series 9 Episode 7: Transactive Energy: what is it and what does it mean for distribution network companies?

Series 9 Episode 7: Transactive Energy: what is it and what does it mean for distribution network companies?

Transactive Energy is a term that’s emerged in the last years, but what does it actually mean, how is it emerging, and what does it mean for distribution networks? In today’s episode, host Jon Slowe is joined by Gerben van den Berg, Senior Consultant in Strategy and Corporate Development for Alliander, a distributer of gas, electricity and heat in the Netherlands and Germany; and Delta-EE expert Jeremy Harrison, who leads our Local Energy System research.

Series 9 Episode 6: Net-zero cities: lots of talk, how much action?

Series 9 Episode 6: Net-zero cities: lots of talk, how much action?

Climate change is rising up organisations' agendas, and a good example of this is cities declaring climate emergencies and net-zero or carbon neutrality goals. Targets, visions and aspirations are great, but they need to be backed up with a clear strategy, plan and action. In this episode, we’re delving into cities and the growing number of net-zero declarations, looking at what’s actually going on, and what we can expect to see in the next years. Host Jon Slowe is joined by Sandra Fives, CEO and Co-Founder at Urbanomy, a subsidiary of EDF; James Sterling, Communications, Engagement and Partnerships Manager at Bristol City Council in the UK; and Delta-EE expert Alix Weil.

Series 9 Episode 5: Thermally driven heat pumps: what are they and why are they important for the energy transition?

Series 9 Episode 5: Thermally driven heat pumps: what are they and why are they important for the energy transition?

Many thousands of thermally driven heat pumps – driven by combustion of natural gas – have been installed across Europe. While boilers are efficient, thermally driven heat pumps are a step higher, as they capture low grade heat from the air, operating at efficiencies of 160% and more. In this episode we look into the state of the thermally driven heat pump market today, and explore where it may be heading. Host Jon Slowe is joined by David Dupuis, Project Manager for Innovative Gas Products at Engie; Stefan van Uffelen, CEO of Cooll Technologies in the Netherlands, and Delta-EE expert Steven Ashurst.

Series 9 Episode 3: Insights from EV Charging in Norway

In this episode we head to Norway, famous for being the leader in the European EV market – at least in terms of EVs per person and percentage of car sales that are electric. Some will say Norway’s not typical – tax incentives certainly help to push people to EVs. But there is plenty to learn from Norway’s experience at the leading edge. Today, we’re going to explore what we can learn about charging of EVs in Norway. Host Jon Slowe is joined by Delta-EE's Abhishek Sampat and Fredrik Lima, Vice President Europe at Zaptec.
