Bob Tregilus, Kirsten Hasberg, & Me Chatting On “This Week In Energy” (Podcast)

TWiEThe hosts of podcast This Week In Energy recently invited me to join them for their 128th episode. It was a super-interesting conversation, imho. If you want to have a listen, click the podcast player above or head over to This Week In Energy to listen.

Things we talked about included:

  • E-world Energy & Water 2014 (which was apparently a bit schizophrenic)
  • Polish energy policy (including the reported “Energiewende” of Poland)
  • Natural gas leakage & natural gas as a bridge fuel
  • The most recent Chevy Volt commercial, gas anxiety, and EV messaging
  • EV awareness (or lack thereof)
  • Charging an EV from the 5th floor with an extension chord
  • European and global EV sales
  • CleanTechnica, Solar Love, EV Obsession, Planetsave, Bikocity
  • Local content requirements and subsidies
  • Feed-in tariff policies in Europe
  • Carbon capture & storage (or so it’s called)
  • NRDC working with EEI on moving the grid forward in the face of rapid renewable energy growth
  • Duke Energy’s recent coal ash spill in the North Carolina Dan River
  • Shipping oil by rail & the Keystone XL
  • Tremendous benefits of EVs — the much better drive and the convenience factor (though, our connection got cut off in this section)
  • + more
