The Energy Gang is break this week for the July 4 holiday. We'll be back next week.

In the meantime, we're offering up a re-run from The Interchange.

In this episode, Shayle and Stephen choose their rosters of nine technologies to decarbonize the global economy. The goal: find the best resource mix to keep global temperatures below 2 degrees Celsius.

  • The draft has nine rounds. The “team” resulting from each person’s picks will need to stand on its own.
  • Each pick must be a unique technology. For example, “energy efficiency” is not a pick, but “LED lighting” is.
  • Technologies with major subsets must be picked separately. For example, rooftop solar and centralized solar are two different picks.
  • The existing technology mix will stand. (We don’t need to pick “transmission & distribution" in order to have electricity.)
  • The time horizon will be through 2050.
  • The winner will be chosen by listeners.
