Beyond the Headlines podcast: World Future Energy Summit rewards world's most energy conscious
Reporting from The World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi, host Naser Al Wasmi chats to some of the Zayed Future Energy Prize recipients
Reporting from The World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi, taking place during Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, host Naser Al Wasmi talks to two Paraguayan girls who have been honoured for their conservation efforts in their rainforest home. If not for young students Pamela Armoa and Analia Velazquez, the distinct, bell-like sound of the Bare-throated Bellbird risks fading away.
We also spoke to H Harish Hande, the founder of the Selco Foundation and winner of the Zayed Future Energy for Prize best non-profit organisation. His group looks to empower residents of India’s slums.
And we sat down with the recipient of the lifetime achievement award, Shuji Nakamura. The Japanese scientist is responsible for developing the LED. The technology is found in everything from the iPhone to lightbulbs that are ten times more efficient that traditional lighting.
