This conversation will be based on Saul Griffith and Alex Laskey’s recently published ’Rewiring America’ ( rewiringamerica.org ) – a significant call to action for electrifying and decarbonizing the US economy. We’ll discuss their plan and ask, should other countries (including Finland) respond with similar initiatives; and what might they replicate or do differently?
