Looming greenhouse gas emission regulations will affect the economies and power grids of every state in the nation. The Commonwealth of Kentucky’s Energy and Environment Cabinet partnered with the University of Kentucky's Department of Statistics to generate a variety of potential scenarios for the future of energy in Kentucky. The projections included economic and environmental impacts of energy production methods including coal, natural gas, nuclear power, and renewable sources of energy such as solar and wind power.
This interview features Leonard Peters, Secretary of Kentucky's Energy and Environment Cabinet, Arnold Stromberg, Chair of UK's Statistics Department, and Woody Burchett, an intern who worked on the project.
