For the last few months, people have been sharing innovations that will improve how generate or use energy with the project of the Center for Innovative Media at George Washington University called Planet Forward. Plant Forward has been airing bi-weekly episodes on Bloomberg TV starting in February 2012. The episodes show our county’s current cycle on smart communities and introduce real characters from the online video submissions, fact-checking their ideas and exploring the technology or science involved and the experts compare the ideas. There are just seven finalists. If you missed the PBS Special, The Energy of Innovation, you can view it online now.
