Small scale energy projects that respect biodiversity while maximizing the positive forces
of nature will not only be a positive solution to the challenge of climate change, such
projects will be able to be used in disaster relief programs in the face of rebuilding efforts.

New technologies must be invented or developed to minimize the harmful effects to

nature, landscape, birds and marine biology in exploitation of wind, hydro and wave
energy. Following are suggested enhanced ecology minded ideas of small appropriate
wind and hydro power plants.

Wind energy for example can be utilized without the necessity of killing birds. This is
achievable through the use of omni-directional vertical turbine, venturi-housing designs.
These types of designs can have protective covers for the wind inlet.

Instead of direct use of hydro power by allowing water and marine micro
organism through the turbine generators, water can be diverted through hydraulic air
entrainment compressor, without going through moving turbine, for usable power. This
way marine life is not destroyed. The tail water after aeration is beneficial for irrigation
and fish farming as well. Most of all, compared to conventional hydro power plants, small
compressed air hydro power plant is much easier to manipulate than direct hydro power
plant, and thus civil construction disturbance to the landscape by dams can be minimized.

A system of small scale Hydraulic Air Compressor Generators (HACG) can be distributed
along a river or around a body of water. With the aerated tail water, not forced through the
vigor of the generator turbine, returning to the reservoirs or rivers down stream, the need
for building large scale dams are not necessary.

In conclusion, if humans and nature work in harmony with each other, the impacts of
projects built by systems engineers who understand the need to work with nature rather
than against it will be the order of the day in the near future.

This chapter will deal not only with the technical solutions for using clean energy; this
chapter will also deal with the philosophical foundations of the reasons for such work.

To implement new technical solutions, we propose that the United Nations immediately
initiate a GENEI (Green Energy Inventions) Depository for selected appropriate technology
for commercialization, available to all nations.
