As Paris prepares to host COP 21, at which more than 190 of the world’s countries will be pledging their commitment to climate change in a universal agreement, we talk to Richard Mardon, Chief Executive of Airvolution Energy, about his experience in the wind power sector and his hopes for the future of renewable energy in the UK.
In this episode, our Co-Founder Tom Greenwood is joined by his friend and self proclaimed ‘sustainability nut’ Ed Murfitt. They talk to Richard about his thoughts on how recent changes in government policy have affected the onshore wind power sector, discuss the long term repercussions of this to both the consumer and globally in terms of climate change and consider the possible solutions – from community ownership to crowdfunding.
