The Importance of Renewable Energy
By Alex K
Hi, my name is Alex, and I’m an engineer involved with NRGLab’s Research Council. For over 15 years, I’ve worked with CAD-CAM computer technology helping other engineers achieve the exact, detailed specifications of their designs. NRGLab’s SH-box is going to change the world, and I’ll tell you why: it’s a source of renewable energy.
When working with computer models, one often uses interpreted data to predict future trends and tendencies. The world should be viewed the same way. By analyzing information about our present, we are able to make adjustments to systems rooted in pre-industrial traditions and optimize our future. There’s no escaping the harsh truth currently facing us: the world is slowly dying. Populations are growing too rapidly. Fuel consumption has escalated out of control. It’s time we applied what we know about our environment to prevent, what seems at the moment, to be an inevitably unhappy ending.
The solution is renewable energy. Renewable sources democratize energy and allow information, technology, stability, and peace to thrive. Countries all across the world are currently pitted against one another in a struggle for control of a limited supply of natural resources. Oil, coal, natural gas. Eliminate the incentive, and we may see an end to war.
Our current dependency on oil and gas was fine for the 1900s. But now the oil is running out, and a few more hybrid cars on the road won’t offset the carbon emissions being pumped into our atmosphere. The damage has been done. Luckily, change is on the way.
But big change requires an open mind. First, we need to be able to imagine a world without gas stations or coal-burning power plants in order to make that world a reality. We need new technology that, in one foul swoop, can be plugged-in to current grids, providing immediate relief to millions of households struggling to make ends meet. We need to come together in order to take a stand against the established energy infrastructure. Energy, like the air we breathe, shouldn’t be treated like a commodity with a price tag attached. It should be treated as an opportunity for people to learn, communicate, and feel a little bit safer at night. Energy is power. And at NRGLab, our goal is to give that power back to the people.
