Podcast: Decarbonizing industrial heat with James MacNaghten

Accounting for 20 percent of global energy consumption, industrial heat is a massive area in need of decarbonization.

Covering everything from pasteurisation to steel manufacturing, there are countless businesses that will need to step away from the current method of burning natural gas, in order to reach net zero goals.

James MacNaghten talks decarbonizing industrial heat.

In this episode, Quentin chats to James MacNaghten - CEO at Caldera - about how this can be achieved and what Caldera is doing to be part of the change. Over the course of the conversation, they discuss:

  • The applications of industrial heat, how it has been achieved to date and types of things it is used for.
  • A look into the simple yet effective technology that underpins Caldera’s product - using readily available and recyclable materials.
  • How Caldera is delivering a cost-effective solution for industrial heat users.
  • Why heat storage is necessary for filling gaps where lithium-ion storage is not the most optimal use case.
  • James’ thoughts on decarbonising other areas of heat production.
