Batteries batteries batteries! At this show, we can never get enough of them. Each battery has its own niche though and Natron Energy has certainly found its niche. In my interview with Jack Pouchet, we talk about the potential of Natron’s batteries to have a pivotal role in supporting essential energy services such as hospitals and data centers. Their batteries are unique and proprietary and use chemical components which have not been used in commercial battery production before. Natron’s new batteries are also making an effort to be sustainable and source common natural resources instead of the rare earth minerals used in lithium-ion batteries.

From October 31 to November 12 of 2021, 197 countries of the world met in Glasgow Scotland at COP26 to discuss climate change, emissions targets, mitigation, and collaboration. It was the first meeting like this since 2019, so the importance of the event was further emphasized. The world held it’s breath as the conference came to a close, and breathed a sigh of relief when the COP26 Glasgow Climate Pact was unveiled. In this bonus episode, we’re going to look at what exactly happened, what it means for the climate in the coming years, and where we are at as a planet as we try to pull ourselves free of the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Concrete production emits almost 3% of the global carbon emissions every year. That is only one portion of the total industrial emissions including steel, aluminum, and clothing. Solutions to these fields are essential to mitigate climate change. The majority of emissions from concrete production don’t even come from burning fossil fuels, but the method of creating the concrete itself. That’s what Cody Finke and his startup Brimstone Energy are working to fix. They are pioneering a new process to create concrete that lowers the production emissions significantly.

The season finale of S1!! This episode is probably my favorite of the season, where we’re talking all about batteries. With energy storage being such a pivotal issue and batteries being one of the most promising candidates for solving that issue, the development of batteries designed to handle grid scale applications is essential.

If there is one solution to climate change that I would say needs the most further research it would be carbon capture. We need to put some energy into this in order to determine exactly how much carbon capture we should be using and how we should be using it, whether it be eliminating emissions from natural gas or pulling carbon dioxide straight out of the air.

Politics. Love them or hate them, climate policies on local, national, and international levels are required if we are to successfully integrate renewable energy and all of the other climate technologies talked about in this show, and prevent the worst effects of climate change. In this bonus episode we are going through the most essential pieces of climate policy in Canada, the US, the EU, and internationally.

While the Paris Agreement was being forged back in 2015, developing countries shocked the world by leading the way and continually pushing for more ambition out of the Agreement. Developing countries have much lower impacts on climate than more industrialized countries, but, developing countries will suffer much more under climate change than the rest.

It is undeniable that electric cars are the way of the future for transportation and mobility. The problem with electric cars is that right now, the majority of electricity produced around the world comes from fossil fuels which kinda defeats the purpose. We need to generate electricity without the burning of fossil fuels. Enter CAPSolar.
