Alternative Energy

Can Idaho be powered by nature? Can alternative energy sources provide enough power to meet all our needs? Which technologies work today? And why aren't more in place?

This week on Dialogue, host Joan Cartan-Hansen will discuss the benefits and challenges of alternative energy sources and what changes state and local governments need to make to encourage the growth of renewable energy. Cartan-Hansen will be joined by Bill Rogers, Associate Lab Director for Energy and Environment Science & Technology at Idaho National Laboratory and John Gardner, Associate Vice President of Energy Research Policy and Sustainability at Boise State University. Cartan-Hansen and guests will also focus on what residents can do to promote and use alternative energy.
