Louis Michaud, a retired refinery engineer and founder of AVEtec Energy Corporation, has created the unthinkable - a vortex engine. When I say vortex, I mean a swirling mass of air; otherwise known as a tornado. Louis believes this a viable, emission-free alternative to present electricity generation methods.
Implications - The growing global awareness of our limited energy resources is forcing engineers to devise futuristic methods of generating power. The most promising areas of development are environmentally friendly generators that use natural elements like wind, sun and water to create renewable electricity. To take advantage of this opportunity, designers must look to Mother Nature and the world of science fiction for inspiration.
