    [BLOCKED] We Need a Plan!

    In 1974, President Richard Nixon proposed becoming energy independent. More than 35 years later, we're further from that goal than ever. Why? The U.S. has never had a plan. With the environmental, social and geopolitical consequences of our energy choices growing far more significant by the day, lawmakers continue to bicker and play politics – delaying any real action that could make the U.S. more secure and environmentally sound. Our guest this week, former Shell Oil President John Hofmeister, takes American politicians to task for failing to display any sense of leadership on energy issues.

    [BLOCKED] Virtual Power Plants Aren't Just Virtual - They're Real

    In the wake of Japan's nuclear disaster, there are concerns about how the country will make up for such a big loss of power. Other countries are examining the same question: What happens if large numbers of power plants go offline at once? One answer to the problem is emerging -- virtual power plants. By using information technologies to aggregate distributed resources while dynamically controlling demand, utilities can call upon "virtual" power plants that act like large-scale generating units. In this podcast, we'll look at how this concept is evolving.
