🎧 New podcast episode:
Toucan is working to make DeFi work for the planet by building market infrastructure to bring carbon markets to public blockchains. Toucan launched in October 2021 as the infrastructure provider behind the Basic Carbon Tonne (BCT), Toucan’s first carbon reference token. In the first month of launch, BCT achieved $2B+ in trading volume and 150,000+ of tokenized carbon credits were retired within two months of launching.
🍸 What we drank during the episode: ☕️ cappuccino + baileys and French cider
Enjoy the show!

This episode is brought to you by ☀️Yotta Energy ! We all know energy storage is key to deploying renewables at scale. I’ve seen many energy storage solutions for commercial buildings over my years in climate tech, but none as impressive as Yotta’s.
Yotta Energy’s unique "PV-Coupled" ecosystem of solar+storage solutions simply integrates within the standard solar installation process. Even better, their integrated storage technology can enable up to 60% more solar to be deployed on commercial buildings. With commercial buildings consuming 35% of US electricity that means Yotta is making a serious dent in CO2 emissions. With the electrification of everything revolution underway, Yotta Energy is poised to meet the growing demands of electrification by sizing solar+storage resources to recharge electric vehicles as they future proof buildings into distributed energy sites powering the grid of the future.
