Taking the CO2 out of home heating

Ravi Gurumurthy, CEO of Nesta, joins Alex Cameron to talk about taking the CO2 out of home heating

Nesta is the UK’s innovation agency for social good and in March, Nesta published it’s ambitious 10-year strategy which aims to improve the lives of millions through mission-led innovation. Ravi Gurumurthy talks with Alex about how Nesta drives innovation and his view on achieving Net Zero by taking the CO2 out of home heating both equitably and on time.

Ravi has extensive experience in this area having been one of the architects of the UK’s Climate Change Act in 2008. Whilst at the Department of Energy and Climate Change, as Director of Strategy, he was responsible for setting and meeting the UK’s Carbon Budgets and developing the government’s 2050 decarbonisation plan.
