The largest international development banks have made it a priority to deliver energy to the 1.3 billion people without access to the modern grid. But are they approaching the 21st-century market with 20th-century solutions?

In this week's show, the Gang will discuss whether organizations like the World Bank are botching investment in energy access by ignoring the full potential of distributed energy and mobile infrastructure. The Sierra Club's Justin Guay will join the gang to chat about how to break out of old ways of thinking about energy access in the developing world.

Then, we'll chat about changes on the grid one year after Superstorm Sandy and explore the coming business model shift within one of Europe's largest utilities.

Join the Energy Gang for its first live show at the MDV-SEIA Solar Focus conference in Washington, D.C. on November 12!
