The New Mexico Clean Energy Update is a series of five-minute radio news reports that feature interviews with prominent policymakers, business leaders, scientists, and engineers. While the stories originate in New Mexico, the clean energy policies and news developments featured apply nationwide.
Each New Mexico Clean Energy Update story focuses on how a clean energy economy is being built in New Mexico. Topics to be examined over the next 13 weeks include the true cost of energy, how carbon markets are designed to level the playing field for clean energy technologies, new financing options for solar energy systems, and more.
The program's five-minute format is ideal for public radio stations. Each episode is also available as streaming audio or free podcast downloads for individuals.
"The current oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico illustrates the nation's urgent need to move to an economy that includes more clean renewable sources of energy, and reduces carbon emissions and dependence on foreign sources of fuels," says Howard Stephens, co-producer of the program. "The New Mexico Clean Energy Update reports the latest innovations and developments to solve our energy problems and reduce our carbon footprint."
The New Mexico Clean Energy Update is written and produced by Jim Cochran, Howard Stephens, and Virginia Stephens of Vision Trust, Inc., a non-profit, tax-exempt organization founded to develop educational and public interest programs. The program is produced with funding from the New Mexico Energy Conservation and Management Division.
