New frontiers of clean energy emerge

This week: a look at how the business of clean energy is evolving. Plus, the battery-recycling boom and Hawaii’s coal gambit.

On The Carbon Copy podcast this week:

Renewables and electric vehicles are on a tear, and they’ll soon likely attract $2 trillion in yearly investment. But global emissions have not yet peaked. 

So what are the new frontiers of technology that will make renewables and storage more valuable — and draw down emissions at the speed required?

This week, we’re going to reflect on that question coming out of RE+, a major American clean-energy conference where our editors were covering emerging tech. 

Then, we’ll discuss the battery recycling boom. It’s attracting billions of dollars in investment. Will it address supply-chain security and a looming waste problem?

Finally, we’ll talk about Hawaii’s difficult transition away from coal. Why wasn’t it able to build renewables and batteries fast enough to fill the gap?

Joining us this week to talk through these stories are Jeff St. John, Julian Spector and Lisa Martine Jenkins.
