The Power Hour is a weekly podcast that discusses the most interesting energy and environmental policy issues with top national experts. In this episode, hosts Jack Spencer, Travis Fisher, and Rachael Wilfong invite Nick Loris, Vice President of Public Policy at C3 Solutions to discuss how government intervention into energy markets leaves Americans with fewer choices, higher prices, and often, worse environmental outcomes. We cover an array of issues in this episode, ranging from government’s role in energy research and development to how bad public policy can result in less innovation and competition. Though we all agree with the general premise that freer energy markets are better, if you listen in, you will hear a little debate during this one. As always, don’t forget to shoot us an email at to let us know your thoughts about the podcast, what you want to hear about, and who you’d like us to have as a guest!
