Abstract

This documentary explores various novel sources for alternative energy. Some of the alternative energy resources that will be explored include fluorescent green proteins from jellyfish, harnessing energy from exploding lakes like the Rwanda Power Plant's efforts to collect the explosive power of lake Kivu, bio-fuels produced from the potentially deadly E. Coli bacteria, using carbon nano tubes to collect solar energy, and the emerging technology of converting vibrations into usable energy. This video documentary demonstrates that there are always new and unusual sources for alternative energy, and that while the laws of energy remain constant, the development of energy sources is always changing.
