How to Make a Difference - Cover


Electricity providers are allowed to buy coal-generated electricity and sell it as green electricity as long as they buy enough green electricity certificates. Sounds crazy, right?

In Episode 11 we untangle the implications and give you an overview of various green electricity models. 

This episode builds on Episode 10, where we speak about renewable electricity more broadly.
