Nearly one year after President Trump was sworn into office, we’re re-examining the state of energy politics in Washington.

Our post-election episodes were some of our most popular shows of last year. This week, we’re returning to the subject now that we’ve got experience, and not just speculation.

Amy Harder, an energy and climate reporter with Axios, joins us to talk about a wide range of topics: deregulation, solar tariffs, ANWR drilling, carbon taxes, an infrastructure bill, and the future of climate negotiations.

We'll start the conversation by discussing FERC's rejection of Rick Perry’s attempt to backstop retiring coal and nuke plants in the name of grid resiliency.

The podcast is also brought to you by CPower Energy Management. Find out more about CPower's demand-side energy management solutions.
