It sometimes seems as if wind energy innovation is happening on an almost daily basis. However, where in some fields innovations may take on drastically different forms, there are only so many ways to change the way a turbine works. Still, many wind energy based companies are trying to find the best way to maximize wind’s potential. A concept that has garnered
Route 80 is an amazing American road. It stretches from New York City and the Atlantic ocean to San Francisco and the Pacific. I had the pleasure of traveling on this American road (our second longest) for 15 hours from New York to Iowa. Countless trucks. And two enduring images.
