Thank you all for your patience during Energy Academic’s short hiatus. I have been traveling these last few weeks giving talks in London and Edinburgh about my dissertation topic and have finally gotten back on my feet here in the States. Before I totally jump back into full posting I thought I would link this interesting little article that showed up today. According to the Energy Information Administration natural gas-powered electric generation equaled that which was produced by coal-fueled power stations for the first time ever. Check out a short article on the subject here: (See: Coal no longer king of the power industry). This is yet more proof of how natural gas is going to reshape the country’s energy future.
