Plenary, Part II: Methane Leaks, Public Policy, the Future of the Natural Gas Grid -- and the Implications for Your Projects

The public has a hard time knowing what to think about natural gas. Is it a cheap, clean source of energy independence for the US for the rest of the century; a useful bridge fuel until renewables are able to come fully on board in 10 or 20 years; hands-down the best choice for heating buildings in the NESEA region; possibly worse than coal when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions; or all of the above? In this plenary discussion four top experts will tell us all about natural gas from the points of view of the research scientist, the law professor, the building systems engineer, and the community activist.
