Craig Applegath, DIALOG Partner, hosts the podcast Twenty-First Century Imperative, where he interviews guests that are making a difference in the race to save our planet from environmental degradation.

Episode 029 | Mike Andrade: Technology Disruption and Canadian Cleantech

"Mike Andrade is the CEO of Morgan Solar and a real veteran of the solar industry. In this episode, Mike talks about everything from his start at IBM, to his views on hydrogen, carbon capture, and of course what he’s doing to promote Canadian cleantech and manufacturing.

This is our first episode in a new series that we are calling Twenty-First Century Cleantech. For regular listeners, you’ll remember that we introduced Connor Reed a couple of episodes ago in episode 27. In this new series, Connor is going to be bringing stories focused on clean technologies through conversations with business leaders, entrepreneurs, researchers, and anyone who is leading the energy and carbon transition.

In our first episode we are talking to Mike Andrade about Canadian cleantech disrupting the oil & gas incumbents. More specifically, we’re talking about solar."

About the TFCI Podcast

The Twenty First-Century Imperative podcast series was created to explore how we as a species will meet the critical challenges of Twenty-First Century Imperative – those being:

  1. How will we continue to live on our planet without destroying our biosphere?
  2. How will we repair and regenerate the environmental damage we have already caused?
  3. How will we adapt to the escalating impacts of climate change?

Craig interviews scientists, designers, planners, engineers, business entrepreneurs, politicians, and other successful change-makers, who are looking for and finding smart, effective ways to answer these three critical challenges.
