Not Your Grandma’s Infrastructure: The Urban Energy Revolution

Friday, Sep 28, 2012

It's time to leave the 20th Century behind and accelerate into an era when cities rely on decentralized systems of heat and power, which have smaller carbon footprints and more reliability than ever before. Explore the emerging solutions — combined heat and power and microgrids — for keeping our cities plugged in, thriving and secure.
