>100 years ago, the common man would have had difficulty envisioning such World’s Fair conceptual attractions as the Ferris wheel, Smell-O-Vision, or Norman Bel Geddes’ immersive prototype of the nation’s first highway system without experiencing each of them firsthand. Envisioning the near future today isn’t much different. When it comes to understanding as-of-yet-undeveloped alternative fuels, like biomass, sometimes seeing is endorsing.
It’s easier to get on board with biofuels once you’ve viewed the technology and asked a few questions. Here are some upcoming conventions and seminars to help familiarize you with the future of alternative energy.
