Indispensable Guide to Energy Democracy

I really appreciate hearing not only about renewable energy transitions but about citizen empowerment and local democracy in the same dialogue. John interviews interesting people, the discussions are always informative, and on the whole the podcast is one of my best resources for clean energy work and policy!
