Energy Demand Duck Curve Graph

Allison Bailes picks the ten "best and most interesting" topics in 2015 from his Energy Vanguard blog. The list includes some truly amazing duct work—and we mean that in the "duct disaster" sense—a story summarizing Building Science Corporation research into what happens inside fat walls, plus a story about the "duck curve," which is pictured above and has to do with energy production and not ducks (except the graph kind of looks like a duck). The number one article on his list is one he hadn't written yet but he's promised to post it today, possibly by the time you read this. Here's the compelte list:
