The Science of Climate Change

Climate change is no longer a distant threat or just a possibility, it is now a reality for all of us. In this pathway, Kevin Trenberth, a renowned climatologist, delves into the science behind climate change. He first introduces the climate system, its main components and forces.

Tackling the Plastic Crisis

Plastic pollution is by far the biggest threat to our oceans and this remains an incredibly tough problem to solve. Plastic credits could potentially serve as one of the much needed solutions for this crisis.

The Scale of the Net Zero Challenge

The price of meeting net zero is estimated to be between $100-150 trillion over the next 30 years. Regardless of this cost, we need to reach net zero before climate change does irreversible damage to the environment and the economy.

ESG, Sustainability and Impact Jargon Buster

ESG, sustainability, impact… they all just mean green, right? Not quite. Despite being used often interchangeably, there are distinct differences between these terms.

Introduction to Solar Thermal Energy

10 mins 13 secs

Overview

It is becoming increasingly evident that climate change is a huge threat to society and also represents a considerable investment risk to businesses. The need to move towards cleaner sources of power is of the essence and although this has been happening with electricity, the generation of clean heat has lagged behind. Amongst all renewable power sources, the sun provides us with the greatest opportunity but is yet to be maximised. The opportunity to use solar thermal technology to decarbonise heat (generate clean heat) will be a major milestone in mitigating climate change. In this video we will introduce solar thermal technology and how it could be used to deliver clean heat.

Key learning objectives:

  • Understand what is solar thermal technology and why it is important

  • Identify the key challenges in decarbonising heat

  • Understand the different potential solutions to deliver clean heat

  • Understand the predicted development of the solar thermal industry as per the IEA’s outlook
