Every week, I host 'The KJ Show,' which offers a mix of breaking news and practical advice on how the energy industry affects the consumer. During this fast-paced show, I combine weekly energy updates with conversations with leaders in the energy efficiency community. 

After each show, I'll share it here with the Energy Central Community in case you were unable to join me live.

This Week: Beneficial Electrification? 

Join Dr. Katherine Johnson as she discusses the pros and cons of beneficial electrification with her guest, Ms. Afroz Khan, engineer and city council member. Dr. Johnson explains some of the unintended consequences that come with a push towards beneficial electrification, including the need to build more nuclear power plants.

KJ You didn't mention hydro and the sign behind you even says FALLS. Nuclear is not renewable and uses a lot of water. Hydro is very good and renewable. Also Geo-Thermal. Add all the Renewables up along with new advanced non toxic long lasting Battery Storage and we are way ahead.

Thanks for watching. Hydro will be a topic of my show on August 17th. However, many environmentalists and journalists are now viewing nuclear as renewable which I find quite interesting. So depending upon who you ask, nuclear energy is or is not renewable. And I am a huge fan of geothermal heat pumps!
