the idea: if windmills lend themselves more to producing mechanical energy (rather than electricity)you could use that as a power source.

idea 2) one of the first problems with a real energy crisis would be transportation/distrobution, railway infrastructure is already there, could be extended

we’ve concentriated most of our efforts on biofuel and fuel cells which are tech heavy and energy intensive but pnumatic tech is already proven, simple and predictable.

the wild thought: on site power gen.
wind to compressed air to ele. motor.
-much power is lost though tranmission though wires could this be obviated with on site compressed air?

leads to the idea of micropower gen.in a area of a few blocks as oppesed to central power generation plant
