It’s been a year and a half since Sandy damaged the East Coast electric grid and left more than 8 million people without power. So what has changed since October 2012?

In this week’s podcast, we feature a discussion on Greentech Media’s new eBook about the legacy of the storm: Resiliency: How Superstorm Sandy Changed America’s Grid.

We’ll talk with Gary Rackliffe, VP of ABB’s North American smart grid business, about how power companies are thinking differently about grid modernization and smart technologies. Then, we’ll look at whether the EPA’s new carbon rules are really all that ambitious. Finally, we’ll talk about how 2014 is shaping up for the energy storage industry.

This podcast is sponsored by eGauge Systems, a manufacturer of next-generation energy meters for solar generation and building demand, submetering, performance contracts, LEED projects and net-zero buildings.
