In addition to interesting guests from the energy industry, political initiatives and local energy transition projects, there are also glimpses behind the scenes of the association here and there. Listeners accompany the two presenters Melanie Alberts and Christian Knops as they get to know the world of renewable energies from different perspectives. In short, they discuss news, information and innovations relating to the energy transition. The core of each episode is an interview.
In the first episode of "Strom Aufwärts," Melanie and Christian talk about the association and its contribution to the energy transition. For example, how does the certification of green electricity work and which projects are supported with the help of the funding component of the seals of approval? In the News-Flash, Christian talks about his new "heart's project" and the question is: How much approval is there really for the energy transition? We also hear about an innovative funding project that supplies the town of Lupburg with local heating and has involved citizens from the very beginning. In the interview, Madeleine talks about what motivated her to do her "internship with added value" at Grüner Strom Label e.V. and how she is also committed to sustainability in her private life.
"The podcast project is a way for us to create more transparency about how the association works, label recipients and funding projects," says host Melanie Alberts, who also works in the communications department of Grüner Strom Label e.V.. "But we also want people to get to know us better while listening. What is it like to work at Grüner Strom Label e.V.? What topics do employees* of the association deal with regarding the energy transition? With the insights into support projects, consumers who purchase Green Electricity-certified electricity can see, for example, that my choice of tariff specifically benefits the energy transition. At the same time, we want to enter into a dialog with our listeners and find out what moves them about renewable energies."
A new 30-minute episode is released approximately every six weeks. The podcast can be listened to on the website, via Podbean, Spotify and Apple Podcasts. The first episode is online now.
