12: Octopus Energy (Mini)

How to Make a Difference - Cover

“Energy has always been expensive and dirty, frankly. Since we first started chopping down trees to build campfires when we were hunter-gatherers. But that phase is coming to an end. So what do we do in a world of plentiful cheap energy?” – Andrew Mack

In Episode 12 we speak with Andrew Mack, the CEO of Octopus Energy Germany. He tells us why time-stamped green energy certificates matter and why there’s hope for a 100% renewable future.

This episode builds on Episode 10, where we speak about renewable electricity more broadly, and Episode 11, where we untangle green electricity certifications.


In our article, I pay for green electricity, but do I actually get what I pay for? we explain how electricity grids work and where you can find green electricity suppliers around the world.
