This is first SAIMechE KZN blog so we're not quite sure what it does or how to use it. The blog has been set up so that all SAIMechE KZN group members are free to post a new blog or comment on an existing blog. It looks like we can create different blogs but we'll just leave it as general for now.

Renewable energy

Posted By Vaughan Rimbault, Tuesday, 31 August 2010
Jason de Beer's presentation at the KZN Branch dinner on 30 Aug 2010 certainly got me thinking about energy and the engineer.  I must confess that I still have a strong leaning towards fossil fuels as being the energy source of choice for the foreseeable future, but as there is a strong global sentiment towards renewable energy sources I also think it prudent that we keep at the forefront of these developments as professionals.  
At the end of the day, no alternative energy supply will materialise without significant engineering input, and we should provide this input from the front of discussion, rather than by being brought in as support for the initiatives of other professions.  Let's embrace the pursuit of renewable energy, if not from a position of personal support then at least from a position of professional support.
