Off-Topic: Renewable Energy

Renewable energy is some neat stuff. While in NZ, I spent five weeks 'interning' at EcoInnovation in Taranaki. It was very interesting and has stoked my fire to get into the industry in the long run. Not sure how it will be done, but it will be done.

Anyway, just trying to keep abreast of developments. My good buddy Craig emailed me a few links. As someone who likes to be well informed, Craig does a lot of reading and is probably my best portal to neat projects like these.

Take a look at them if you are interested.
- NanoSolar - Huge potential in the field of photovoltaics.
- Magenn - A pretty innovative wind turbine idea.
- ThermoEnergy - Clean coal burning?!?! OK, it's not renewable, but very pertinent!

I'm standing at the urinals in the Toucan after the KBA thing a few weeks back. Lo and behold I look up and see a clip out of the wind turbine thingy from the National Enquirer of all places, right along side the Britney Is An Alien and Man Transplants Public Hair to Scalp articles. So much for being informed.
