Has the UK Government botched its energy strategy?

4/22/2022
Happy Earth Day! Today is a day that we should be celebrating the planet that we live on, and looking to ensure that it has a future for years to come. In fact, you’ll likely see celebrations from Governments around the world as they proclaim their commitment to saving our planet from the disasters that await us if we don’t act on climate change. The UK Government is likely to be amongst the most vocal. Boris Johnson made a big deal of his Government’s commitment to fighting climate change,...

Is an EV charging regulator needed? Ofcharge it is!

3/4/2022
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders has called for the establishment of a new Government regulator that will oversee the rollout of electric vehicle charging infrastructure throughout the UK. The group has even come up with a name for this new regulator, dubbed ‘Ofcharge’. Despite the on-the-nose name, is this regulator actually needed? Well, we will discuss this very subject on the latest episode of the Powered On podcast, assessing the current state of EV charging in the UK and...

What does it mean to be green?

2/18/2022
In his hit song, Kermit the Frog asks ‘Do you know what's green?’ It’s a pertinent question to ask, especially with the world committing to net zero within a few decades. But in order to achieve those goals, we’re going to need to switch to green technologies, right? Well, as the lyrics go, it’s not easy being green. The European Union has positioned itself as a leader in going green, but it appears even it agrees with the Muppet’s bleak assessment. The political bloc has found itself...

Was Cop26 a success or a total cop out?

11/19/2021
The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, more commonly known as Cop26, has finally wrapped up and while it was the largest and sixth longest to date, was it a success? That's what we will discuss on this week's episode of Powered On, chewing through the fat and analysing whether any of the new promises will actually result in moving the needle.

Avoiding (grid) failure - with Joël Jaton, co-founder & CTO of depsys and Anja Langer Jacquin, depsys’s CCO

7/2/2021
At the moment, the UK is rife with failure, mostly emanating from our government. I mean, whilst babies were dying in maternity wards, people were losing loved ones unable to say goodbye, and lifesaving cancer treatments were being pushed to the wayside resulting in yet more deaths, I can’t help but think this might have all been preventable had our Health Secretary had his eye on the ball. The next issue we have to contend with, in fact, an issue we’ve had to contend with for a long time...

Rogue Trainers - Featuring Kaiden Ashun, Screwfix Trade Apprentice Competition winner

6/11/2021
In this episode, we discuss the ‘right’ routes into the industry, with insight on avoiding those dodgy online companies that – for a nominal fee – will claim to have you fully qualified and raring to go in a matter of weeks. Unfortunately, that just isn’t the case, and these companies are more than happy to take your money, in exchange for a “qualification” that isn’t worth the paper it’s written on. Here at Electrical Review, we aren’t big on scamming the young people we need to sustain...

5/14/2021
In this episode titled, ‘EV for EVeryone?’ contributing editor Jordan O’Brien (proud owner of an electric vehicle) attempts to knock editor Claire Fletcher (owner of decidedly non-electric vehicle) off the proverbial EV fence. Will he succeed? Give us a listen and find out. You never know, you might even learn something yourself. Despite the adoption of electric vehicles featuring as a key part of the UK government’s 10-Point-Plan to ‘build back greener from the pandemic’, there is still...

Children of the (Green) Revolution

4/30/2021
What has the UK Government done to achieve net zero by 2050? That's the question we're going to be asking in this episode of Powered On. There have been countless promises and the proclamation of a Green Revolution, but what action has been taken to actually achieve our net zero goal? We'll chew through the fat, exploring the promise of offshore wind powering every home by 2030, what Government incentives are out there for those wishing to be green, and the disaster that is the Green Homes...

New Grids on the Block

4/16/2021
Powered On, a brand-new podcast from Electrical Review, is finally here. In this episode, we’re discussing all things National Grid and the upcoming target of Net Zero. We’ll look at whether Ofgem is right about further independence for National Grid ESO, or if it’s fine just the way it is. Claire Fletcher, Editor of Electrical Review, and Jordan O’Brien, Contributing Editor, will also discuss what Net Zero means for the UK. Could we be seeing the end of the National Grid as we know...
