Charlotte Talks: The Future of Energy


Monday, September 25, 2017

The way Americans consume and produce energy is changing and diversifying. The future of energy in all its forms takes center stage in Charlotte, as an energy hub city- we’ll explore what that future may hold, when Charlotte Talks, with guest host David Boraks.

The way Americans consume - and produce-  energy is changing, with ramifications for the economy, our competition around the world, not to mention security.

Dr. Bernard Weinstein of the Maguire Energy Institute regularly looks at energy policy issues and has testified to Congress about energy many times.

In Charlotte, these issues are paramount as a city that is an energy hub, so Dr. Weinstein joins guest host David Boraks to discuss the future of energy—what we can expect from renewable energy, the future of coal in the US, and what technologies are most important as we look to the future of energy production and consumption.
