Episode notes

Battery storage is on the agenda as a very special guest – Ben Guest of Gresham House – joins The COP Shop.

Ben takes the team through the potential and importance of this technology for a UK energy system which is growing in reliance on intermittent renewables as it strives to reach net zero.

Joining him in the virtual pod booth is NatWest Head of Climate Change James Close and EV’s Europe Editor Allister Thomas, to discuss the challenges around financing and credit-risking new technologies, as well as reflections on COP26 now the dust has well and truly settled.
