Renewable Rant: Traditional Energy!

Posted on August 29, 2016 at 6:20pm 0 Comments

Why, when I open up a newsletter or market evaluation report about “traditional energy” markets, do I read about fossil fuels?

Hard to admit, but I'm not all fun-facts all the time. Sometimes I even pay attention to things that aren't energy related. So, rather engineering geek-speak that dominates the energy efficiency professional’s lexicon, today’s post is about “energy art” as a counterbalance to the usual “art of energy” commentary. This is a subject I've been following for many years and it's inspiring to see what artists can do with solar panels, radiators, and flame.
 
Today, I'm…
