The Clean Energy Revolution podcast

In season 2 of The Clean Energy Revolution podcast, Max La Manna takes a look at the role energy plays in tackling the negative effects of climate change, and discovers how the world will be powered in the next 30 years as we work towards a net zero future that doesn't contribute to global warming.

The Clean Energy Revolution also looks at the part can we all play - as individuals, businesses and nations - to help make this happen for the good of our planet, and how we all have a role in one of the most incredible revolutions in human history.

Listen to season 2, episode 7: Clean energy in the fight against fuel poverty

In episode 7, Max discovers the ways that non-profit organisations in the UK and US are using clean and renewable energy solutions to help in their fight against fuel poverty.

From building solar-powered tiny homes for the unhoused, to using energy efficient measures to help those in need, Max speaks to some amazing people who are doing great work for their communities and for the planet.

Find out how they’re tackling fuel poverty by helping others to save energy or use cleaner energy, taking us closer to the goal of net zero while working to ensure that no-one is left behind in the clean energy transition.
