Clean Energy: Wind, Solar or Biofuels?


As an extension to Design News’ discussion group on LinkedIn – System & Product Design Engineering – this webcast series is designed to explore some of the most commented-on discussions in the group.

In this webcast, the focus will be on the topic of alternative energy’s long-term viability and current application. Digging deep into this topic, we’ll cover:

  • Generation and application of energy from solar and wind power technologies
  • How alternative energy storage issues are being dealt with from a systems engineering point of view
  • The role of biofuels in systems design
  • Smart grid compatible embedded systems and protocols
