The Energy Overseer 

Archives 2002--2006

Look for my cover article on the aging utility workforce, "Brain Drain: Our Graying Utilities," in the premiere issue of EnergyBiz magazine, Nov/Dec 2004. In the Jan/Feb 2005 issue, my contributions included "Breaking the Energy Deadlock" and other stories about National Energy Policy Act debates, and "Piecing Together the Interactive Utility." The March/April 2005 issue featured my articles, "Executive Suite Musical Chairs" and "The New CIS Experience."

Energy Central in June 2004 published the Pulse e-zine devoted to the status of the U.S. electric transmission system. Building a 21st Century Grid features articles and opinions from such well-known energy observers as Leonard Hyman, Bob Gee and Chuck Newton. Besides editing the issue, I contributed two features:

"A Conversation with Clark Gellings of EPRI" about transmission infrastructure needs, and "Is Reliability a Good Investment?"
