Welcome to the Emerging Technology Corporation - Green DivisionRenewable Energy
Any energy resource that is naturally regenerated over a short time scale and derived directly from the sun (such as thermal, photochemical, and photoelectric), indirectly from the sun (such as wind, hydropower, and photosynthetic energy stored in biomass), or from other natural movements and mechanisms of the environment (such as geothermal and tidal energy). Renewable energy does not include energy resources derived from fossil fuels, waste products from fossil sources, or waste products from inorganic sources.

Oh no! We burn forests and coal, like tenants burning down our front door for heating. We live like wild settlers.”
Thomas A. Edison, 1916
ETC Staff monitor and collect data from several hundred weather stations – many on our own project sites. Most every month we are recording data that we ultimately label, “[X] in recorded history” – [highest wind speed], [coldest temp], [hottest temp], [most rainfall in some period of time], …
