Tech Talks: Sustainable Systems of Colorado and SkyTran Part 2

Posted: January 20, 2017 at 8:25 am by , in Morning Magazine, Tech Talks

Today we’re talking to Dr. R. Paul Williamson about his foundation and the work that he does within it. This week we focus on the Smart Home Projects and sustainability for the future.

 

As we move forward, sustainable and renewable energy is becoming increasingly important. More and more companies and businesses are trying to use solar and wind energies to supplement their fossil fuel intakes. The general public, on the other hand, has a much more limited access to sustainable energies. Sustainable Systems of Colorado is a non-profit organization that works to promote sustainable energy within Colorado. Two of their biggest projects have been SkyTran, a monorail system that runs on solar and hydraulic energy, and the Sustainable Smart Home which is a renovated home that uses a variety of modern and old technologies that are based around renewable resources.
