What is the future of the energy grid? (with Macky McCleary)

Season 1, Ep. 3

A few weeks ago there was a blackout in New York City and it caused all sorts of problems: traffic and subway gridlock, people trapped in elevators, no working appliances or computers. It is really a window into what our life would look like if there weren’t abundant electricity everywhere. So today we talk with Macky McCleary, former Administrator of the RI Division of Public Utilities, current partner at Innogy consulting, and a senior fellow at the policy lab, about the future of energy. Listen in to hear about the impact of the changing energy grid on the climate and your everyday life.
