  • Gwen Holdmann Featured in Australian Podcast

ACEP’s Gwen Holdmann attended the Isolated Power Systems Connect conference in Tasmania in November. While there, she participated in “Now, That’s What I Call Science,” a weekly radio show about science, technology, engineering and math.

Holdmann talked about similarities between small isolated grids in Alaska, Australia and other regions of the world that struggle with energy connectivity. She and the host also discussed how to become less reliant on fossil fuels.

The podcast, titled “Going Off Grid,” aired in Tasmania on Nov. 24. It is available through Spotify (episode 39) and Stitcher.
