BILLBOARD
Music: In

Greg Dalton: Entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley and elsewhere are working on better ways of powering the American economy. Some are developing new solar and wind technologies or figuring out ways to make fossil fuels cleaner. Others are targeting an area often overlooked, commercial and residential buildings. That’s a big opportunity. Homes, offices and malls account for about a third of the country’s power use, and a third of carbon emissions.
Kevin Surace: How do we use more recycled materials? How do we reduce the energy usage over the life of the house?
Greg Dalton: On the supply side of energy markets, new technologies such as hydraulic fracturing are creating jobs and boosting American competitiveness. But there’s concern that the boom in natural gas may have hidden costs lurking below.
