This past week, we recorded a live show at the MIT Energy Conference.

The theme of the show: what the grid may look like by 2040.

As a topical show, we usually don’t know what we’re going to be discussing until a day or two in advance. But the theme of the MIT conference was "tough tech and the 2040 grid" — so we decided to take it head on.

To start, we’ll adjust our brains to the 2040 timeframe with some fantastical scenarios.

Then, we create our own plans. We will each outline a possible future for the 2040 time frame — Katherine will look at policy and politics, Jigar will look at the business environment, and Stephen looks at technology make-up.

Finally, a news circuit. We’ll provide some quick commentary on top stories of the day.

And we’ll end with our Free Electrons.
