Podcast: How to run an entire country run on 100% renewables

It will take enormous flexibility, interconnectivity, and storage, but it is possible... By Tortoise Media | April 7, 2022

Inside The Energy Transition is a podcast about the bright future of green energy. This six part series from UN Climate Change High-Level Champions media partner, Tortoise, explores the biggest questions, and debunks the most commonplace myths about the transition to renewables: one of the defining goals of our time.

Over six episodes, hosts Lucy Yu (CEO of the Centre for Net Zero) and Giles Whittell (editorial lead on climate and sustainability at Tortoise) talk with experts and key figures to understand the future of the energy landscape. Will the transition be slow, or can it happen faster than we think? Can you really run a whole country’s power grid on renewables? And is achieving an equitable transition the stuff of dreams, or a genuine possibility?

They say the future is full of electricity blackouts and rising energy bills. But they’re wrong. If we take the right steps we can achieve this transition, and pave the way to a better future.
