The new episode of the Solar Media Podcast, sponsored by Honeywell, is now available to stream, as we ponder whether renewables can be doing more as extreme weather events escalate.

Recent episodes of extreme weather in western US and Europe have provided a taste of the effects of climate change, while at the same time numerous reports have shown that not only did renewables growth slow last year, but in the first six months of this year soaring energy demand created room for more fossil fuel generation.

In this episode of the Solar Media Podcast, we reflect on those incidents and ponder what needs to happen for renewables to fill the void once and for all.

Meanwhile there’s also discussion of considerable interest in long-duration energy storage technologies and recent trade sanctions levied at China’s solar supply chain.
