Wind energy and integrative design pioneer Dr. Ty Cashman talks about early experiments in ecological building at the New Alchemy Institute, the principles of integrative design, and the role of Community Choice laws (like the one passed in San Francisco) to help usher in what he sees as the inevitable establishment of a solar-hydrogen economy.
Dr. Cashman, President of the Solar Economy Institute, was instrumental in the founding and rapid development of the wind energy industry in the 1970s and 80s at the New Alchemy Institute in Massachusetts and Canada, in the California Governorπs Office, and as President of the American Wind Energy Association. Dr. Cashman has lectured and published on hydrogen energy since 1994. He consults with government agencies, businesses and NGOs on implementing renewable energy technologies.
