Chain Reaction Podcast News Round Up: Ofgem’s Energy Price Cap, OpenAI Unrest, and Black Friday Overload

Stay informed with Chain Reaction

Wondering why your energy bills are soaring despite the price cap by Ofgem? Ever pondered the consequences of a world dominated by AGI, amidst the recent upheaval at OpenAI? Join me, your host Tony Hines, as we tackle these pressing issues head-on. We'll dissect the current state of energy regulation in the UK, scrutinising Ofgem's effectiveness, or lack thereof, in protecting consumers from spiralling energy costs and the government's silence on this matter following the recent Autumn Statement. 

Switching lanes, we throw light on the turmoil at OpenAI, examining the sudden dismissal and reappointment of Sam Altman as CEO and the whispers of a breakthrough AGI on the horizon. What does this mean for us, and more importantly, the energy sector? Coupled with fluctuating gas prices, the urgency for energy companies to invest in renewable sources is more pressing than ever. Lastly, we unpack the impact of consumer saturation, using the illustrative example of Black Friday sales, on our supply chains. An episode filled to the brim with insights on technology, economics, and consumer behaviour, we promise an enthralling conversation that will leave you thinking long after it's over.
