Totally Unnecessary - And Counting


WKRG.com News


Energication is not a place for political rhetoric or partisan views or even any single-minded perspectives. (Except for the strong belief that Energy Education is needed; is valuable; is inevitable.) So the oil spill odometer is meant only to make a point about how unnecessary it is to endanger our environment for the sake of energy.

Instead of tapping an arguably limited oil reserve 5,000 feet below the surface of an ecologically fragile ocean, why not tap the immensely unlimited potential of our students and avoid these issues altogether? This is a potential that can design a future that we can only begin to imagine.

So how do we tap that potential? Energy Education.

Energication continues to promote the value of making energy a core strand in our schools. It affects fuels, the environment, civics, our legal system... Based on BP's experience, I believe you get the point.

Thank you for your continuing interest passion surrounding Energication's Energy Education.

Charge During Drive



If nothing else, we Americans are creatures of comfort. Notice that I didn't say creatures of habit, but that is true also. Yes, we do enjoy our comfort. So when I saw this example of the ultimate "creature comfort" in the realm of battery-driven driving, I just had to share it.

Batteries are today's "Achilles Heel" in our drive for electric mobility, but there's an exciting technology that could negate the need for a super-battery that will supposedly solve our energy storage problems: Inductive Power Transfer, or IPT.

IPT is in effect, wireless power transfer, using wireless magnetic energy.

Educators, think of the varied science and technology curriculum opportunities while you enjoy the video!
