Host Daniel Raimi talks with Dr. Destenie Nock, about her study which shows how, on hot days, Black and low-income households wait relatively longer than other households to turn on their air-conditioning units. This puts them at a greater risk of heat-related illnesses. She examines the reasons behind this behavior and provides an overview of energy insecurity and energy poverty in the United States.
Nock discusses Energy Poverty, and what it currently looks like in today’s climate. The gang discuss how energy poverty is a massive problem today, and explore the dangers of how addressing climate change, could make things worse.
Nock shares novel findings of energy equity algorithms.
Guest co-host, Dr. Destenie Nock, discusses how to measure equity outcomes in energy systems. Dr. Nock is creating new models for energy-systems planning that factor in positive social objectives, in addition to cost and reliability metrics.
Nock discusses how grid hardening can aid in storm protections, and reliability concerns during storms.
Nock discusses how to make the grid more resilient to climate change and what it will take to build a equitable and just energy system.
Nock appeared on News Nation Prime to discuss the impact of heat waves on the power grid.
