Energy crisis, lobbying and the future of UK Energy supply, with Jan Rosenow
Show Notes

If you've seen the news in the UK in the last month, you'll be well aware that our old energy system is having a bad time.

With gas prices spiking, all the noise from COP26, and the public's temperament towards climate activism cooling, it's probably worth figuring out what the hell is going on with our energy supply, and how we make it equitable and  sustainable for generations to come.

This week on the show we are joined by Jan Rosenow (@janrosenow). Jan is the European director of the Regulatory assistance project (RAP) which is dedicated to speeding up the transition to clean and green energy. He also is a special advisor to the UK government's Department of Business, Energy and industrial Strategy (BEIS).

We discuss what is causing the current energy crisis,  who has a stake in for the UK's future energy mix (and what measures they'll go to to defend those stakes,) what politics is created by energy production, and the viability of community energy systems.
