Our lifestyle is powered by energy, yet many of us know very little about it. In this week’s Energy Bite, a weekly 90-second radio module focused on energy technology, opportunities, and challenges related to everyday life, listeners will learn things, such as how a city keeps traffic moving in a black out and hear answers to quirky questions like: Should I use wood to heat my home? Just how smart are ‘smart meters’ anyway?
Each episode, hosted by 90.5 WESA Pittsburgh and distributed by Public Radio Exchange (PRX), features interviews with energy experts from Carnegie Mellon University’s Scott Institute for Energy Innovation. Listeners can participate by asking the experts questions to explore in future episodes and by responding to polls linked to the stories. For more information visit www.energybite.org.
