Chilean Renewable Energy Investment Potential With Technology Transfer, Kyle Herman Jan 2013

Chilean Renewable Energy Investment Potential With Technology Transfer, Kyle Herman

Dr. Kyle S. Herman

For potential for investment in Chilean renewable energy investment is promising. After the Chicago boys effectively transformed the Chilean economy into a haven for FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) during the 1980’s, government laws have aligned definitively with neo-liberal policy—in other words, open markets, incentives for investors, public-private partnerships and consistent injections of capital into its financial markets. This article explore these components and highlights investment potential and offers policy advice.


Renewable Energy Storage Systems, Kyle Herman Jul 2012

Renewable Energy Storage Systems, Kyle Herman

Dr. Kyle S. Herman

This paper investigates various storage options for renewable energy, in an attempt to deter the insidious effect of the common notion that renewable energy is intermittent and thus cannot compete with fossil fuel or conventional energies, the object of this paper is to reveal a few basic storage options for renewable energy which are already widely deployed.


Danish Wind Energy Innovation, Kyle S. Herman Mar 2012

Danish Wind Energy Innovation, Kyle S. Herman

Dr. Kyle S. Herman

This article compares the exceptional Danish wind energy innovation system with the system employed by the US government. The underlying assumption about innovation systems in the US is that they are technologically driven, and past technological advances can be built upon leading to break-through innovations. However in Denmark, innovation was driven from citizens and relied on no break-through technologies, but rather a piecemeal process of collective, smaller innovations. For wind energy, this process was far more successful than the technologically driven innovation system in the US.
