Energy Enablers

A podcast about the people in the energy transition.

The energy transition will only succeed with the people who make it a reality: the consumers, the lawmakers, the engineers, the technicians, the decision-makers and the innovators. We call them The Enablers.

In the Energy Enablers podcast, a regular series from FORESIGHT Climate & Energy, we will speak to those who are making a difference in the race to a decarbonised economy.

Join FORESIGHT’s Editor-in-Chief, David Weston, to hear from Enablers that are working in the energy sector, discussing what motivates them, their journey to where they are today, and how they think the energy transition is going.

We want to build a community of listeners that are just like us: passionate about moving the global energy transition forward, so please don’t hesitate to engage with us, give us feedback and share your recommendations for future topics and guests.
