If you want supreme technical quality and seamless production click away now. (things do, hopefully, improve in later podcasts). If you want well-informed energy related analysis then continue.
I dug this from the vaults, it is the first podcast from Charley Rattan and John Massey, who together are "Astute New Energy".
In this episode we have a general chat about the differing fortunes of offshore wind and nuclear power here in the UK. Both provide important sources of low carbon power from huge power generation projects. Yet one is booming and seeing its costs plummet, while the other is beset by delays, high costs and investor disinterest. Why the difference? It's not a story simply of technology and money, but one where supply chain, policy and industrial strategy issues will all play major roles.
So, despite some first-effort 'quirks' (barking dog anyone...) click and enjoy and feel free to get in touch with any comments or suggestions for our future discussions.
