A podcast about the future of electricity

The Flux Capacitor podcast features discussions with business and thought leaders of the electricity industry on the future of the business of electricity. The discussions touch on how we create, move, trade, and use energy, with each guest adding their own expertise and perspective to the conversation. What will be the impacts of technological change? How will markets and customer demands respond to new technology? What will change, both social and technological, mean for regulators, society and the electricity industry?
