Controlled Tornadoes Create Renewable Energy

Waste heat from power plants could be twisted into a nonpolluting source of energy.
By Breanna Draxler

Tornadoes may be destructive, but even funnel clouds have a silver lining. Inspired by the process that creates natural twisters, electrical engineer Louis Michaud of Canada’s AVEtec Energy Corp. designed a nonpolluting source of swirling power he calls the Atmospheric Vortex Engine. The device can spin waste heat from power plants into usable energy.
