Not Your Grandma's Infrastructure: Post-Sandy Wake-Up Call

huffington post

"Now we know. The energy systems a 21st century megacity needs can't be 20th century retreads. They won't be reliable, they can't be secured and they won't be efficient. Recovering from Superstorm Sandy's insurgent devastation means a fundamental rethinking of these relics,"  writes School of Engineering and Computing Sciences Dean Nada Marie Anid, Ph.D. and co-author Nancy Anderson in The Huffington Post.

"In this shape-shifting environment promoting an energy revolution will entail creative destruction -- a process by which new technologies and ways of doing things are developed that destroy and replace the old ones."
