The second of the presentations I gave at this year’s Penguicon was titled ‘Alternative’ Alternative Energy Generation.

Alternative energy systems such as wind power and solar panels have become so familiar they really have become mainstream. But these aren’t the only alternative energy systems available. There are ‘alternative’ alternatives that offer other ways of harnessing energy from other sources and in other ways than the ‘mainstream’ alternative energy methods. Find out about river current power generation, wave power, kite wind power, etc.

The PDF of the presentation is here, and the links to articles about the various technologies discussed are after the cut.
