Connecting the America The United States, along with other countries in the Americas, is supporting the development of an integrated electricity grid that stretches from northern Canada to the southern tip of South America as part of a program called "Connecting the Americas 2022," according to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who says adding regional power interconnections will help get the most out of the resources in this region.  (Read more)

    There is a new world wide web emerging right before our eyes.

    It is a global energy network and, like the internet, it will change our culture, society and how we do business.  More importantly, it will alter how we use, transform and exchange energy.

    Enough solar energy falls on the surface of the earth every 40 minutes to meet 100 percent of the entire world's energy needs for a full year.

    There is no energy supply problem, there is an energy distribution problem -- and the emerging solution is a new world wide web of electricity.
