Podcast: Offsetting carbon with batteries with Emma Konet

Despite their position in the world of renewables energy, some actions taken by batteries actually result in carbon emissions, but what if batteries could be more incentivized to make carbon negative actions and clean up the grid?

Using carbon offsetting solutions to minimize carbon emissions is a key tool in reaching net zero. Strategic use of batteries in areas with high marginal carbon emissions means they can act as carbon avoidance offsets.

In this episode, Quentin talks to Tierra Climate Co-founder and CTO, Emma Konet.
Over the course of the conversation, they discuss:

  • The ‘four quadrants’ of carbon offsetting.
  • The reality of the environmental impact of energy storage.
  • How we can take carbon accounting a step further with locational marginal emission measuring.
  • Battery operations and how Tierra is incentivizing emission-reducing behavior.
  • and much, much more.
