Solar energy is one of the technologies that will be an important part of the global transition to renewable energy, however there is another technology that partners perfectly with solar power – wind. Wind energy is more active at the times when solar isn’t at night, cloudy days, and winter months.
This episode is a conversation with Ken Kotalik, the Director of Global Sales for Primus Wind. Primus Wind manufactures small off grid wind turbines that generate clean energy in applications that do not connect to the grid. Their turbines are simple and efficient and coupled with solar, creating a renewable energy system capable of generating power in a variety of conditions. Wind is incredibly important in making renewable energy available around the clock, and Primus is making that happen. Ken Kotalik tells me about how Primus’ turbines work and even more about why wind energy is essential for more widespread implementation of carbon free energy. Check out the resources below for more information on Primus Wind and power electronics.

Innovating a Bright Future is the podcast that brings together technology and climate action in an engaging interview format that showcases some of the most interesting initiatives taking place across the globe. If you are someone who cares about climate change but you’re tired of hearing about how the world is going to explode in a few short years if we don’t do something soon (What does that even mean?), then this podcast is for you. We stay away from divisive politics and meaningless numbers with no context, and instead I interview climate action leaders implementing revolutionary ideas that are helping to reduce our impact on the world around us. Listen to this podcast to learn, be inspired, and find new ideas to look into even more. If you are interested in getting involved, please use any of the contacts or social media listed below, and look into the links below as well for actionable things you can do right now.
Who am I?
My name is Avry Krywolt, I am a student from Alberta Canada, I am passionate about taking action against climate change, and I am the host of Innovating a Bright Future. I’ve noticed through my own experience that the number of people concerned about climate change is growing quickly. At the same time, the information being presented to the public is, in most cases, a sad sigh of defeat, irrational denialism, or frantic screaming that does no one any good. The fact is that climate change is happening, but it is not hopeless, and you are not powerless. TED speaker and climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe said that “The most important thing you can for climate change is talk about it.” so let’s talk about it. Let’s learn about solar energy and battery storage, let’s dig into green hydrogen, and wind, and the power of water, and the importance of sustainable energy. Let’s learn and let’s discuss. We aren’t doomed, but we have to work hard in order to keep climate change from wreaking real havoc on our world. So let’s get to work.
