Ep 017 Debunking the 100% Renewables Myth (feat. Meredith Angwin)

We talk to Meredith Angwin, author of Shorting the Grid, The Hidden Fragility of Our Electric Grid and energy consultant. We chat about ISOs & RTOs, beating the peak, passing the energy buck, fragilizing the grid, the myth of of 100% renewables, baseload energy, energy fiefdoms and more!

As a working chemist, Meredith Angwin headed projects that lowered pollution and increased reliability on the electric grid. Her work included pollution control for nitrogen oxides in gas-fired combustion turbines, and corrosion control in geothermal and nuclear systems.

She was one of the first women to be a project manager at the Electric Power Research Institute. She led projects in renewable and nuclear energy.
