Energy Matters is a new six-part podcast which will explore the Irish energy sector in detail.

How have we reached the position we are in right now? How much is the war in Ukraine really to blame? What must we do better in the future? And what innovations are coming down the track to help us get toward a more sustainable future? Each episode will speak to experts within their fields to get to the real truth of the situation.
