Pipelines and Turbines...More than hot air.

Some great insight into relevant topics. Let's see this podcast come out on a regular basis. You're suffering from the same challenges as wind; intermittent output. With three well-spoken, well-informed, average funny individuals I look forward to hearing from them again. They are not just hot air.

Great Alberta Energy podcast

If you’ve ever wanted to know more about the energy headlines check this out. If you’ve wanted to know how some of these complex energy policies are made or how they impact the sector in reality check them out.

If you’re interested in knowing more about (mostly) western Canada energy I would start with them.
