Professor Benjamin Sovacool was interviewed about his research on the Energy Transitions Show, focusing on the speed of energy transitions in Nordic countries as well as in the United States. The interview also touched on CCS technology, the potentials and pitfalls of nuclear power and how distributed energy resources could replace it. Professor Sovacool emphasised that transitions are influenced by a seamless web of economic, political, cultural and social dimensions that fuse together, and policy makers should design public policies that reflect the socio-technical nature of the problem, rather than focusing on one dimension only.
The Energy Transitions Show is an online radio show run by energy analyst Chris Nelder and features interviews with energy experts.
