4 Easy Steps to Complete a PDHengineer webinar

A large percentage of the energy we use today comes from the burning of nonrenewable energy sources, such as oil, natural gas, coal, and uranium. While specialists disagree on how soon we will run out of nonrenewable energy sources, there is no denying that they will one day become scarce and difficult to recover. This fact, together with the harsh environmental impact of harvesting these energy sources, makes the generation of renewable energy both a pressing concern for today’s engineers and a promising area for innovation and ingenuity.

One of the largest untapped sources of renewable energy is hydrokinetic energy or the energy of moving water. This webinar focuses on The Greene Turbine, which uses an internal fluid drive system to transmit hydrokinetic energy to the turbine without a mechanical connection, a process which could change the way we look at generating electrical power. Invented by Geoff Greene of Memphis, Tennessee, The Greene Turbine produces a large amount of energy in an environmentally friendly way. Indeed, it might possibly generate up to ten percent of the electrical energy consumed in our country. A Proof of Concept test has already been done on The Greene Turbine and plans are underway to deploy the first production model in the Mississippi River.

We will examine the technology used in The Greene Turbine and see how this new electrical energy generator works. Participants in this exciting webinar will no doubt gain a new perspective on energy use and consumption. Studying inventions like The Greene Turbine may encourage other entrepreneurs to envision and develop new methods for generating energy and help us all live in a world where clean renewable energy is the norm.
