  1. 1. Tornado Power - A Future Energy Source?<br />By: Lisa Zyga<br />
  2. 2. Background <br />Tornadoes<br />Violent, rotating column of air that extends from a thunderstorm to the ground level<br />Atmospheric Vortex Engine (AVE)<br />Generates artificial tornadoes by mixing hot air with cold air<br />Hot air comes from nearby coal plants, sun or other ambient heat source<br />
  3. 3.
  4. 4. Background<br />A potential energy source in the future<br />Potentially world changing technology<br />Ability to generate nearly 700 watts of electricity to power a city of 500,000 people<br />Takes the concept of green technology to a whole new level <br />
  5. 5. Interesting Points and Observations<br />Possibility of harnessing and utilizing such a dangerous and highly unstable natural force<br />Supposedly cheaper electricity can be produced<br />Cost of electrical energy produced predicted to be just half other alternative energy system<br />Nothing is wasted in the process<br />Cost of cooling wasted steam - $20 million / cooling tower<br />
  6. 6. Key Takeaways<br />Potential energy sources are always available in the environment around us<br />Human innovation has no bounds<br />Technology can become so advanced to control even the most devastating natural phenomenon <br />
  7. 7. Personal Assessment and Rating<br />7.5/10<br />+ve: Very in-depth explanation on this new technology<br />-ve: Does not offer many criticisms of the innovation<br />
  8. 8. Issues for Discussion<br />Do you think it is safe for us to toy around with potentially fatal natural phenomena?<br />Should we abandon older sources of energy for this new sources of energy?<br />
