Is Education the Fuel We Need for a Renewable Future?

The study took 16 billion pieces of weather data, filtered out unlikely sites for power production, and developed a principle for an effective smart grid that would provide extensive renewable transmission to balance production and demand. The future is bright for renewables, but some may argue that there is a crucial missing link that could be a detriment for industry development: education. To address these concerns, several innovators have created programs to secure our energy future by educating our students – from tykes to undergrads. In North Carolina, a group of green energy advocates banned together to develop a weather kiosk that is: “Cool enough to notice. Close enough to check out.” Outfitted with solar panels, a wind turbine and a weather station, Sprout calculates and combines data for wind speed/direction, solar elevation/irradiance, voltage, watts/m2 availab...
