New Forms of Wind Power and the Incentive for Out of the Box Thinking on Energy

Saul Griffith—MIT-trained material scientist and mechanical engineer, Lemelson-MIT Prize winner, Macarthur Fellow—will be at Harvard February 25 to talk about his latest startup, Makani Power. The company is seeking to harness high-altitude wind energy to produce energy at an unsubsidized real cost significantly below that of the least expensive coal-fired power plants. Griffith’s free lecture is part of the Future of Energy lecture series sponsored by the Harvard University Center for the Environment. More information here.
