How can the third largest consumer of coal in the United States thrive in a carbon-constrained future? Jim Rogers explains how Duke Energy is working to reinvent its business model to modernize and decarbonize its power generation fleet, and make the communities it serves the most energy efficient in the world. Applying this approach nationwide, he says, would solve our economic and environmental challenges simultaneously.

James E. Rogers is President, CEO, and Chairman of the Board, Duke Energy, Charlotte, North Carolina.
