The Fossil-Free Future of Coal Plants

Anthropocene Institute

|

September 15, 2023

The mining and burning of coal is worsening the effects of the climate crisis. We all know that. However, can we do something about the coal processing plants themselves? Can these dirty coal plants be retrofitted to process fossil-free energy instead of dirty energy? It may surprise you to know that the answer is yes. This article was written by Anthropocene for We Don't Have Time, after the Reuters SMR & Advanced Reactor Conference, where Kirsty Gogan highlighted the need to optimize existing infrastructure, utilize current transmission systems, transfer skills, and act swiftly to mitigate risks of the energy transition.

What They Really Mean for You

BBC - Science & Nature

August 1, 2023

How we heat our homes is set to radically change as the UK government phases out gas boilers? But can changing the technology we use every day help us reduce greenhouse gases and stop climate change? BBC investigates if it’s possible to heat our homes by replacing oil and gas boilers with new green alternatives, whether the country is ready to build an entirely low-carbon electricity network, and if we can do it all before the government’s net zero target of 2050. Kirsty Gogan was interviewed to provide a potential answer to these staggering questions.

Great.com interviews Terra Praxis on Climate Solution Through Nuclear Energy

June 26, 2023

Erik Bergman from Great.com interviewed Terra Praxis as part of their 'Great.com Talks With...' podcast. This series is an antidote to negative news stories and aims to shed light on organizations and experts whose work is making a positive impact on the world. Nuclear power plants leave a very tiny environmental footprint compared to coal plants. What we get in return are much larger amounts of energy. We need the whole range of clean energy tools, including wind, solar and nuclear - which provides the level of energy required to meet growing global demand with no emissions. Because of that, there has to be a conversation around transitioning away from fossil fuels and into nuclear. And in their latest episode, Erik talked with Kirsty Gogan, Founding Director and Co-CEO of Terra Praxis.
