There has been a lot of talk about gender equality, inclusion, and diversity in the last few years---both in society in general, and within industries and organizations. It is an ongoing challenge in many industries, and energy is no different. The energy industry has been improving, but is still challenged in the areas of diversity. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), women’s participation in the energy sector is below that of the broader economy.

The Grid in Arts & Culture: Electric Art

Electricity is mystifying. It is ubiquitous, dangerous, life-saving, and a great majority of end users don’t understand how it is transmitted and distributed in the grid. It’s also ingrained in pop culture, from Pikachoo to Thor, the eureka light bulb, and innumerable other references. A hot topic, thanks to climate change and the clean energy transition, there is transformation happening around the world when it comes to the electric grid. And transformative times are known for creating lots of innovative art.
