Ohhh it's the big one at COP27 today - energy! A huge talking point right now, especially with the cost of living crisis. Last year Ben chatted with Mark about some pretty ingenious ideas - maybe now's the time to boost these projects...
The climate crisis is usually talked about in terms of the big picture, but Mark Gillott talks to Ben about the local community-driven work he is doing and the massive impacts it could have on green energy as a whole. They discuss the Trent Basin project, Mark's revolutionary ideas and what the real meaning behind the flickering black and white symbol before an ad break on tv is (which blew Ben's mind).
