Marilyn Brown, Regents' Professor and Brook Byers Professor of Sustainable Systems in the School of Public Policy, was quoted in an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The article discusses how Georgia Power is continuing its transitions away from coal as its source of energy.

An excerpt:

For many people in the electricity sector, the current debate isn’t so much about whether to drop coal.

“What do we replace the coal with? That is the big question,” said Marilyn Brown, a Georgia Tech professor of sustainable systems who previously served on the board of the Tennessee Valley Authority, the nation’s largest public power provider.
