ABC Science Show energy panel with Simon Hackett

At the 2016 WOMADelaide festival, ABC Radio National science journalist and broadcaster Robyn Williams interviewed a guest panel – including Redflow’s Simon Hackett –  about the big changes happening in the way we generate, buy and sell electricity. We’re seeing batteries, microgrids, and the possibility of self-sufficiency based on renewable energy, both for individual households, and in some cases, whole towns. In many places, the new options presented by technology and innovation are marching ahead of regulations, meaning some initiatives are being restrained by laws drafted for a different world.
