BoingBoing science editor Maggie Koerth-Baker will conduct a conversation tonight in NYC about DIY energy:
Bigger is better. Thats been the mantra of energy generation for a century. But its starting to change. More individuals want to generate electricity at home. More companies and municipal utilities are finding opportunities to produce electricity on a regional or community scale.
What does a decentralized energy future look like? What makes it possible? And how will it change our world? Join Maggie Koerth-Baker — science editor of BoingBoing.net and author of Before the Lights Go Out, a new book about the future of electricity — for a conversation about DIY energy featuring Chris Hackett of the Science Channels Stuck With Hackett, Susan Covino of PJM Interconnect, one of the independent organizations that controls movement of electricity around the grid, and Lisa Margonelli, a senior policy fellow at the New America Foundation.
