Renewable Rant: Traditional Energy!

Posted on August 29, 2016 at 3:20pm 0 Comments

Why, when I open up a newsletter or market evaluation report about “traditional energy” markets, do I read about fossil fuels?

Allow me to propagate a radical idea that I hope will change the way you think and talk about energy. First there was solar energy. It remains as steady, predictable, and powerful today as it has for the past five billion years (give or take a few creationist theories).

Hard to admit, but I'm not all fun-facts all the time. Sometimes I even pay attention to things that aren't energy related. So, rather engineering geek-speak that dominates the energy efficiency professional’s lexicon, today’s post is about “energy art” as a counterbalance to the usual “art of energy” commentary. This is a subject I've been following for many years and it's inspiring to see what artists can do with solar panels, radiators, and flame.
