The Power Hour | A Conservative Man in a Liberal World (and another farewell)

The Power Hour is a weekly podcast that discusses the most interesting energy and environmental policy issues with top national experts. In this episode, hosts Jack Spencer and Travis Fisher invite Daniel Simmons, former Assistant Secretary for the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy at the Department of Energy and energy policy extraordinaire. Among other issues, we discuss how Dan resolved his personal views on energy policy as a limited government conservative with leading one of the least conservative operations in the U.S. government. As expected, Dan brought a thoughtful, principled, and humble approach to his job. I concluded we need more Dans. Let us know if you agree by reaching out at or to give us your thoughts anything else that’s on your mind!


Finally, we are very sad to report that this is Travis’ last episode. You’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out where he’s going next.


Good luck, Travis with your new adventure! Thank you for helping make the Power Hour a worthwhile proposition and we will miss you!
