New writing… My latest piece for The Hub – the award-winning content platform curated by Mitsubishi Electric – looks at the prospects for the global UN climate talks coming to the UK, in Glasgow, towards the end of 2020. In the wake of what was a disappointing and frankly dispiriting showing last time out in Madrid, the piece explores how a climate-aware UK business should plan and prepare to manage expectations for the best at COP26, in Scotland.

Radical change: ‘Industry 4.0’ & ‘Future of Energy’ in The Times

New writing… Pleased to say I have had another couple of pieces published in The Times newspaper this week, as part of special Raconteur reports on Industry 4.0 (Wednesday 7th March) and the Future of Water (Thursday 8th).

In Industry 4.0, my article on sustainability questions whether incrementalism is no longer enough to deliver the ambitious global change required for alignment with the SDGs. It discusses how the technological advances of the Fourth Industrial Revolution might be successfully embraced to achieve transformational shift:

‘It’s time for sustainability to get radical’.

My second piece provides the overview intro to the Future of Energy report and looks at the Water-Energy-Food nexus. It explores how, in the tangled relationship with water resources and food production, energy efficiency is saving livelihoods and lives, in communities from Africa to Afghanistan:

‘Life-and-death struggle for energy efficiency’.

India: The Power of Rain

New writing My latest piece for Eniday is now live, looking at the relationship between drought and energy outages in India, as extreme weather events take their toll. Last year, no fewer than 18 thermal power plants experienced shutdown as a direct result of water shortages. For a deeper exploration of the water-energy nexus, follow the link to read the story in full: ‘The Power of Rain’.
