As developing countries escape poverty and march toward prosperity and better lives, more people than ever are using energy--to power their homes, schools, hospitals, and businesses, and connect to the global economy. But how will we provide more energy while still protecting our environment?
Hosted by Swedish economist and author Johan Norberg, Power to the People explores how innovation and new technologies are providing answers to our world's growing energy needs. From a solar facility in Morocco to wind farms in Denmark, from a hydraulic fracturing site in Pennsylvania to a trucking company in Florida that is converting its fleet to natural gas, Power to the People examines how innovators from around the world are finding new, creative, and cost-effective solutions to our planet's growing energy needs. © 2015 / 57 min.
