Juliet Davenport emphasises the role of renewable energy in the fight against climate change and shows how unprecedented progress is being made.

As the CEO and founder of leading renewable electricity supplier Good Energy, she speaks of advances in solar and wind power, but also recognises the importance of political solutions.

Davenport explains how studying Physics sparked her interest in renewables, and she encourages today's students to seek out the many opportunities in the sector.

In this podcast interview, Davenport also describes how she balanced her love of sport, especially lacrosse, with her studies at Oxford.

In April 2015, Davenport also spoke about energy at the Meeting Minds: Alumni Weekend in Europe held in Vienna.
