IPI Policy Basics: The Goal Should be Energy Abundance (Audio: Podcast)

There is no need for fossil fuel advocates to bash renewable energy, and vice versa. Instead, we should all be pursuing energy abundance as a strategy, and encouraging an “all of the above” approach. Innovation in energy should be favored by all, whether it’s innovation in cleaner burning fossil fuels, solar and wind, geothermal, or nuclear. There is no reason to discourage a single megawatt from being produced from any energy source, and large-scale storage has the potential to radically create new energy markets and new opportunities. Led by IPI President Tom Giovanetti, with Resident Scholar Dr. Merrill Matthews.
