Harvesting the Skies With Flying Wind Farms

TEDxFreiburg 2024 with Jochem De Schutter

Jochem De Schutter, postdoc at the Department of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK), is a speaker at TEDxFreiburg 2024.

Jochem De Schutter has a powerful vision, in all senses of the word: He is working towards a future powered by clean energy, globally available, that fosters faith in human ingenuity again. That vision might seem like utopia, but he wouldn’t be on our stage if it wasn’t within reach. So how do we get there? Jochem De Schutter will use his talk to present a – possibly disruptive – novel wind power technology which he has been fostering since his PhD research: the „minimalistic wind turbine“.

To find out where this technology operates, how it could save huge amounts of resources, and why we should all be open towards and even excited about radically new technologies, you’ll have to watch his talk at TEDxFreiburg 2024.

Date:   23.03.2024, 14:00 – 21:00 (CET)
Place:  Konzerthaus Freiburg, , Konrad-Adenauer-Platz 1, 79098 Freiburg im Breisgau,
