    I would like to attend the webinar but i dont see any way of joining it,
    how does this work?

    I got a major break through in wind turbines, that I've built and proven is the most powerful wind energy system in existence but I cant get it into manufacturing bc nobody will listen to me and let me demonstrate my revolutionary new world saving technology to them, it's a simple math mathematic formula that I've discovered that proves I am correct: A×V=taetdw, meaning area × velocity = total available energy to do work, here check out my test run of a 6 ft prototype that produced 3,000+ watts in a 25 mph, that's a world record in itself. Check out my video and see my worlds most powerful wind turbine technology,
    if built to scale: one 500 ft diameter wind turbine marketed as mobile offshore power plant can produce over 100 megawatts per unit in comparison to a vestas v-1644 that has a diameter of 535 ft and can only produce 9 million watts per unit in peak wind conditions.
    What have I got to do to get somebody to listen to me and let me prove to them my technology ??

      Don't worry, nobody will listen to me either. I have solved Schrödinger equation and published the paper in a reputable journal. Nobody cares. My concept design of seawater desalination is very cheap and functional. I have figured out high-altitude spacecraft launch on the cheap. I have figured out vacuum balloons, obviously on the cheap. I have a PhD in chemistry, a PhD in mathematics, and a BS in aerospace engineering. I have figured out plenty else. Whatever. I will keep pushing. It pains to me to say it, but I am applying to similar initiatives outside US, like INNO-vation in Japan. Have applied there for the vacuum balloon.

      Some times when people design stuff they are blinded by their passion to see it work. 30 years ago a similar shroud was on popular science magazine. I think they called it a "wind thrust augmenter".Ok you can improve wind power on a smaller diameter trubine, but the cost /watt is more. It is much cheaper to build a free flying 3 blade rotor. You say 500 ft diameter system, the neighbors arent going to let it happen because they will say its ugly. give it up man.

      They wont see it if its 10 miles out in the ocean, the manufacturing cost to watt percentage is not a big factor when you compare it to 2 gigawatt coal power / natural gas, hydro, solar, and nuclear power. Infact my systems should be less expensive , figure this say one 500 ft infinitenergy Geo 100 megawatt offshore mobile power plant cost $250 million each, so that's a total cost of $5 billion for 2 gw generating capacity.
      e.g. Three Gorges Dam project would cost 180 billion yuan (US$22.5 billion).

      Owner(s): China Yangtze Power (subsidiary of China Three Gorges Corporation)

      Construction cost: ¥203 billion (US$31.765 billion)

      Type of dam: Gravity dam

      Creates: Three Gorges Reservoir
