The first episode of the SGN’s new podcast series, Heat Without Carbon, is now available to download.

Hosted by experienced podcast producer and journalist Colin Kelly, the podcast is a 30-minute deep dive into the issues facing the UK as it moves toward a net zero energy system, including hydrogen heating, its impact on consumers, and the cutting-edge research needed to decarbonise the sector.

Produced remotely due to the ongoing restrictions imposed by the coronavirus crisis, in each episode Colin takes a closer look at the issues facing the energy sector and our research projects, drawing on the expertise of the SGN’s Energy Futures team and colleagues from their partner organisations on the front line of the fight against climate change. Heat Without Carbon will take listeners behind the scenes, giving a deeper understanding of the green energy transition.

In the first episode, Colin is joined by Gus McIntosh, SGN’s Director of Energy Futures, as the drivers for phasing out natural gas and introducing clean gases are explosed, such as hydrogen and biogas, into the network.
