This new research experiments show that we are now capable of removing certain necessary processes from the main energy use stream.
A true giant step towards total renewable energy.
These are some of the new developments that will allow us to remove a major portion of the oil and coal based energy consumption currently in use all around the world.
It shows that we can free ourselves from the high dependency we have grown up with that has created much of the earth's woes we now experience.

It also shows that each industry should be able to produce the energy that industry needs to operate.
Which is what I consider one of the most important models for the next age.
If every industry can produce the energy it needs, thus removing that industry from the Grid.
Imagine if one day there was no need for burning coal to make electricity, the atmosphere just might recover and we will be able to continue to exist without contaminating the planet upon which we live.
