ABSTRACT

Disruption has become a dramatic part of America life, much of it tied to innovation.  The energy industry is leading change.  The mix of energy we use, from renewables to oil and gas, is shifting dramatically.  Natural gas is rapidly taking out coal, a large nuclear power plant will be shuttered, solar is becoming increasingly competitive. 

Let’s ask a few questions.  What is driving this?  How do we compare with the rest of the world?  What does this tell us about markets and prices? What disruptions lie ahead? The Great Crew Change is becoming a reality – what kind of energy industry will emerging energy leaders build?
