Sue Skemp's Talk at 2014 TEDx Boca Raton Posted
If we've paid our bills, we rarely wonder whether a light will turn on in our home when we flip a switch. If we desire the sustainability of renewables as an alternative to conventional generation, we have to address the challenges they often present at utility-scales: availability, reliability, and consistency. Join Sue Skemp as she explores a different option: ocean currents, on a journey to a blue energy future!
This footage was captured from TEDx Boca Raton 2014 where SNMREC Executive Director shared her vision of a blue energy future with ocean current energy.
