Climate sector buzzword and an absolute necessity for a sustainable future, electrification has become a popular topic in recent years. Electrification is the process of transitioning from the use of fossil fuels at the point of use, to electricity, with the most obvious example being buying an electric car. The goal of this episode is to delve into why electrification is an important step for climate action and to show you how we can do it. To summarize, electric mechanisms are generally more efficient than fossil fuel-based systems, and electrification is essential to reducing emissions in concert with the decarbonization of the energy grid.

Innovating a Bright Future is the podcast that brings together technology and climate action in an engaging interview format that showcases some of the most interesting initiatives taking place across the globe. If you are someone who cares about climate change but you’re tired of hearing about how the world is going to explode in a few short years if we don’t do something soon (What does that even mean?), then this podcast is for you. We stay away from divisive politics and meaningless numbers with no context, and instead, I interview climate action leaders implementing revolutionary ideas that are helping to reduce our impact on the world around us.

Who am I?
My name is Avry Krywolt, I am a student from Alberta Canada, I am passionate about taking action against climate change, and I am the host of Innovating a Bright Future. I’ve noticed through my own experience that the number of people concerned about climate change is growing quickly. At the same time, the information being presented to the public is, in most cases, a sad sigh of defeat, irrational denialism, or frantic screaming that does no one any good. The fact is that climate change is happening, but it is not hopeless, and you are not powerless. TED speaker and climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe said that “The most important thing you can do for climate change is talk about it.” so let’s talk about it. Let’s learn about solar energy and battery storage, let’s dig into green hydrogen, and wind, and the power of water, and the importance of sustainable energy. Let’s learn and let’s discuss. We aren’t doomed, but we have to work hard in order to keep climate change from wreaking real havoc on our world. So let’s get to work.
