A Special Tour

Public Utilities Fortnightly's editor-in-chief and managing editor, Steve Mitnick and Lori Burkhart respectively, were given a special tour of one of the world's top energy labs, at EPRI's sprawling campus in Charlotte, on the second of October. It was a day filled with wonder with one remarkable demonstration after another by some of the world-class scientists and engineers who innovate there. Though we felt it could have used a gift shop so we could have brought home souvenirs from the experience. Aside from the fascinating interviews and photos that follow herein.
You might just feel like you were with us on that special tour. Check out the mechanical testing and welding labs that exist nowhere else on this earth. And the incredible test devices that seem like they come from a science fiction movie. We did think more than once that one of those super cool high-tech tools would look mighty nice on our garage workbench.
