Face of the new, green economy

BLUEFUELENERGY.COM: People love to talk about the new, green economy, often in broad, sweeping terms, such as how it can help mitigate global warming and thus prevent ocean levels from rising, or plant and animal species from disappearing. Big picture stuff.

But an economy is a human construct. It’s created by humans and propelled by humans. And it’s composed of countless human faces. Renewable energy—fundamental to the new, green economy—is now generating countless jobs, each of which has a face. One of those faces is that of Troy Galloway, who now makes wind turbine components. Troy’s story puts a face on the new, green economy and reminds us that using renewables such as wind to produce Blue Fuel/DME does more than prevent ice caps from melting or enhance air quality. It also generates jobs that enrich people’s lives and bring communities back to life. We hope you enjoy this little movie.

  1. I am always excited to hear about the new job opportunities created from Green Technology. My town, a small community that has been devastated by the closing of automotive factories, has announced plans for wind farms.
