Michael Matvieshen has worked in technology development, and, more specifically, energy production and renewable energy, for the majority of his career, which has spanned over two decades. He is currently the CEO of Sunlogic, and has also worked with SunVault and Aboriginal Power Corporation. With a global energy crisis looming, it is becoming more and more crucial to switch to renewable energy. Here are some of the most popular forms of renewable energy.
Solar power is one of the most popular forms of renewable energy because when used efficiently, it can power large areas and is easy to collect. Many businesses and homeowners are now choosing to add solar panels to their buildings to power them. Wind power is another popular form of renewable energy, especially in the western parts of Canada and the United States where wind speeds get very high and there are large amounts of open space in which to collect it. However, wind power is more difficult to collect that solar power.
Hydroelectric power is another common form of renewable energy. Hydroelectric power is created when moving water (i.e. from rivers or waterfalls) is put into a turbine and the motion creates energy. This form of power is not used as often as wind and solar power are, but has potential to be used more often in the future, and could even be created through artificial bodies of water. While Michael Matvieshen specializes mainly in solar power, he is passionate about the environment in general, and is enthusiastic about increasing the use of renewable energy everywhere.
