    Our lifestyle is powered by energy, yet many of us know very little about it. In this week’s Energy Bite, a weekly 90-second radio module focused on energy technology, opportunities, and challenges related to everyday life, listeners will learn things, such as how a city keeps traffic moving in a black out and hear answers to quirky questions like: Should I use wood to heat my home? Just how smart are ‘smart meters’ anyway?
