Jock Gill is an entrepreneur who's thinking broadly and acting decisively to help create a decentralized energy system that makes appropriate use of biomass. In part two of a two-part interview, he and host Jon Udell discuss zero-energy houses, micro combined heat and power, peer-to-peer resource sharing, and the relevance of Thomas Malthus, Benjamin Franklin, and John Nash -- among others -- to our current energy predicament.

Jock Gill is the founder of Pellet Futures, a bioenergy consultancy.  Previously he was the co-founder of Biomass Commodities Corporation (BCC) and President of the Grass Energy Collaborative (GEC). Since 2005, Gill has been dedicated to the creation of a biofiber energy sector that produces biofuels and land stewardship tools to promote economic development, a healthy environment and energy independence.
