In today’s summer conference, SAEA member Engineer Tarabishy, Ph.D. discussed the power of renewable energy: energy from naturally replenished resources such as sunlight, wind, hydropower, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat.
He outlined various forms of energy and applied this to Syria, which has excellent solar resources and some good wind energy locations.
He also commented on the US falling behind on this global effort to shift to renewable energy in order to cut pollution. While the US has significant technology and resources to implement renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and hydropower, their efforts pale in comparison to countries like Iceland, Norway and Sweden, where up to 7830 megawatts of green energy is being produced per million people.
Dr. Tarabishy frequently contributes his expertise in renewable and alternative energy to SAEA, and hopes to encourage new solutions both in the US and globally, including in Syria.
