Renewable energy

Harvey Abouelata, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Efficient Energy of Tennessee, discusses Power trip: from oil wells to solar cells—our ride to the renewable future by Amanda Little. After covering the environment and energy beat for more than a decade, journalist Little decided that the only way to really understand America's energy crisis was to travel into the heart of it. She describes the most extreme frontiers of our energy landscape, how abundant oil and coal built the American superpower, and how the same American ingenuity can deliver our renewable energy future.
