Episode 7 – It’s not about the money, money, money with Lewis McDonald, Global Head of Energy for Herbert Smith Freehills

In this episode, Tim and Mel are joined by expert third wheel guest, Lewis McDonald, Global Head of Energy for Herbert Smith Freehills. Fresh from presenting at the 12th Annual Sustainable Innovation Forum (SIF) which took place alongside COP26 in Glasgow, Lewis observes the number of zeros committed to net zero, at least $133 trillion as announced by Mark Carney’s Glasgow Financial Alliance. He asserts that the real challenge is creating enough investable net zero projects for the money – through a public / private blend of government support to achieve scale and efficiencies, and the legal mechanisms to make novel projects work.
