Bio of Presenters:
A passion for social responsibility and renewable energy inspired Ted Christopher to create a device that could make a real difference in the world. It wasn’t enough for the Volturnus to be just another underwater windmill; it had to be revolutionary, elegant, and simple in design and execution. It had to capture people’s imagination.
For the past 9 years, Ted has shepherded Verterra’s development from the construction of small scale models to full system architecture prototypes, patents, strategic partnerships and collaborations, to building a world class team to solve the global need for distributed, renewable energy.
