CRISPR GMOs

Volume 18, Issue 4 (Jun 2017)

A genome editing revolution of unprecedented magnitude— spearheaded by a scientific breakthrough called CRISPR—is underway. This powerful technology has enabled scientists to precisely edit genes and is challenging long-held conventions of how humans view life. The incipient power to control and alter the genetic destiny of living organisms, including plants and animals intended for human

Grid Modernization and Energy Poverty

Volume 18, Issue 4 (Jun 2017)

Grid modernization holds the alluring promise of rationalizing electricity pricing, saving consumers money, and improving environmental quality all at the same time. Yet, we have seen only limited and patchwork regulatory initiatives towards significant grid modernization in the United States.

An Inclusive Energy Transition: Expanding Low-Income Access to Clean Energy Programs

Volume 18, Issue 4 (Jun 2017)

An array of new state policies and declining costs for clean energy technologies have opened electricity markets to many new participants, including electric utilities’ own customers. Most low- income customers, however, lack the resources to access these markets. Indeed, low-income customers already face disproportionately high energy and transportation burdens. Regulators and utilities have expressed concerns

Demand Response’s Three Generations: Market Pathways and Challenges in the Modern Electric Grid

Volume 18, Issue 4 (Jun 2017)

Through a historical analysis spanning nearly five decades, this Article provides a comprehensive discussion of how demand response (reductions in electricity consumption in response to grid emergencies or price signals) has become both a growing resource on the electric grid and a policy trailblazer in the grid’s ongoing transformation. The discussion centers on three separate
