Ruby Heard is concerned about “how to deliver responsible, sustainable energy solutions to remote communities”. She works in the remote communities of Australia and the Pacific and see so many examples of abandoned engineering – “We've just left them with no support and no money to have these things maintained”. Unfortunately, the solution is complex. From ensuring good systems are installed in the first place, through to robust community engagement and financial support for proper life-long maintenance. That is just the beginning to the changes that need to be made.

This is a podcast about the engineering challenges that are facing today’s society.
