October 20 — Energy Sources of the Future: Will We See Turbines Off the Norwalk Coast?

Energy use is rapidly changing, as the world adjusts to two powerful influences in both global and domestic markets: The increasing use of nontraditional energy sources, such as wind and solar, and the onset of the fracking revolution that has dramatically reduced the price of natural gas and petroleum. The resulting impact on prices, the environment and the world economy is examined in light of these changes. The potential for out-of-favor sources of energy, such as nuclear power, to once again become a focus of U.S. energy policy is also discussed.
