Internet technology and the reality of renewable energy are creating a revolutionary new type of electrical grid in which energy is stored and distributed on an individual basis: Soon, hundreds of millions of humans will generate their own green energy and share it, just as they do now with information. Jeremy Rifkin, author of The Third Industrial Revolution, says this “Energy Internet” will fundamentally change every aspect of the way we work and live—if we can summon the political will to embrace it. Presented by The Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with Elliott Bay Book Company. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust and the RealNetworks Foundation.
