On Selling the Smart Grid to Consumers

Thanks for this, Evan.  And many thanks to our panel, who found more areas of agreement than not.  It's interesting how often "chicken-and-egg" was used in the discussion, and indeed, without a strong public/private partnership and and some innovative approaches to personal consumers/homeowners, smart grid implementation will still have strong obstacles to overcome.

On Infrastructure Failures and Investments in the Future

This call for alarm is also borne out in the recent oil pipeline spill into a tributary of the Kalamazoo river.  The head of the West Michigan Environmental Action Coalition, Rachel Wood, and I spoke recently and she pointed out that the Dept of Transportation had sent a letter of warning to Enbridge, the Canadian pipeline company which maintains the Michigan pipeline, in January of 2010 which was ignored.  Presumably we will discover the Dept of Transportation's failures with the San Bruno rupture.  Congress needs to review oversight for the nation's pipelines - presumably taking this function from the notoriously under-funded DoT.

On Climate Change and the Integrity of Science

Michael, well-said.  Thanks for continuing to converse, and for your restraint.  As a moderated community, The Energy Collective does reserve the right to exclude comments when they become overly personal, but it appears that both you, Stephen and Ed are still mostly arguing issues of fact, which we appreciate.

On The SOTU and Energy

Comment gremlins, present.  Sorry for the glitches in the system... scientists are at this very moment working on improving the comments system.  But in the meantime, for the very erudite and thorough commenters like Mr. Styles, we recommend first writing the comment in notebook or a word program.

On America’s Most Important Environmental Law Turns 40

A stretch, but nice photo choice, Tim.  Reminds me of the postcard entitled, "The President and the King."

On Smart Grid: On its way…slowly

It also requires a "layer of intelligence" from the states.  That should slow things down a bit as well.  For more on smart grid, and to hear Marc's discussion, be sure to sign up for tomorrow's live webinar being brought you by TEC and Siemens.  Scroll up on the left navigational for registration.
