Energy Innovation podcast series

Published on 1st Jan 2024

Welcome to the Energy Innovation podcast homepage.


Technology and data continue to transform the energy industry. Where previously innovation had been focused on engineering technology and new forms of generation, what we're seeing now is a response to this shift in the form of technology which drives efficiencies across the sector. The decarbonisation agenda and the net-zero commitments which have followed have pushed the move towards alternative, intermittent, renewable energy sources, but how do we find a balance between the supply of power and demand?

Our energy innovation podcast series will explore a broad range of issues including M&A considerations in the Energy sector, VC investments, cybersecurity, due diligence and post-merger integration issues and touch on areas including virtual power plants, energy hubs, optimisation arrangements, smart homes and cities, energy storage, flexibility and balancing, and energy efficiency. Our expertise comes from working with aggregators, technology businesses and investors at the cutting edge of innovation, advising on complex and innovative power management and smart energy infrastructure and solutions which our clients increasingly need in this highly competitive and changing market.
