CONFERENCE ON FUTURE ENERGY II SERIES - COFE II - VOL 1 PRECIS OF POST-PETROLEUM ENERGETICS INCLUDING SEAWATER AGRICULTURE (DVD)

Price: $19.95
Item Number: COFE201DVD

By Dennis M. Bushnell - Precis of Post-Petroleum Energetics Including Seawater Agriculture

 

 

This presentation surveys the Post Petroleum Energetics Landscape - sources, storage and conservation. Sources include biologics, PV, [Solar] Hydrogen, Advanced/"Ubiquitous" Geothermal and various classes of "nuclear". Biologics are particularly interesting for the shorter term with "Seawater Agriculture/Irrigation" utilizing Halophytes grown on "Wastelands" obviating the usual Biofuel/Bioenergy constraints of arable land and fresh water shortages. Scalable bioreactors minimize transportation economic burdens and enhance overall energy efficiency. Conservation approaches with major leverage include Thermal Diodes, CNT Computing, CNT-Enabled weight reductions and the emerging "Tele-Everything" mantras. Nanotechnology is increasingly important and enabling across the entire future energetic spectrum.
