As a working chemist, Meredith Angwin headed projects that lowered pollution and increased reliability on the electric grid. Her work included pollution control for nitrogen oxides in gas-fired combustion turbines and corrosion control in geothermal and nuclear systems. She was one of the first women to be a project manager at the Electric Power Research Institute where she led projects in renewable and nuclear energy.

In the past ten years, she began to study and take part in grid oversight and governance. For four years, she served on the Coordinating Committee for the Consumer Liaison Group associated with ISO-NE, her local grid operator. She teaches courses and presents workshops on the electric grid.

She is also an advocate for nuclear energy. Her previous major book was Campaigning for Clean Air: Strategies for Pro-Nuclear Advocacy. Meredith has been a featured speaker at several nuclear events, including being keynote for the worldwide Nuclear Science Week in 2018.

She and her husband George live in Vermont. They have two children and four grandchildren, who live in the New York City area.

Carnot Communications

Carnot Communication’s central mission is to help people learn about energy choices. People may bash one type of energy or another, but most people are aware that there is no free lunch.  Each kind of energy has strengths and drawbacks. Going forward, a mix of energy sources is best for the planet, as a balanced diet is best for a person.

We will achieve a balance of energy sources when we can talk about energy in terms that people can understand. Communication is key to the future of energy and new technologies. Communication is the emotional and business equivalent of sunlight.  We all need it.

Carnot achieves this mission through books, articles and presentations about energy and energy choices. Carnot Communications was founded by Meredith Angwin, and she is still the owner and a major contributor to the business.
