About the cover

Liqin Jiang Liqin Jiang is a load forecast analyst. Each day, she uses temperature, humidity, wind and other key metrics to forecast customer power demand for Duke Energy’s Midwest operations for the next seven to 10 days. She must be as precise as possible to ensure that adequate supplies of power are available to meet that demand. Her analyses are just one example of how the Duke Energy team works each day to balance — and ultimately to solve — the new energy equation.
