Lonnie Johnson is interviewed by William Thornton at Al.com: "Lonnie Johnson is always moving, always thinking, always tinkering. That becomes apparent on a visit to his laboratory in downtown Atlanta."
Lonnie Johnson is trying to create more energy, and do it with clean sources. He envisions an engine that could convert heat to energy. Lonnie tells us that the best energy source is the sun, but cost effective technology to convert the sun to energy does not yet exist. In his SolveForX talk, Heat Direct to Electric Energy, Johnson gives us his best current solution.
Our team has been hard at work on the JTEC, my invention that turns heat into electricity. I am very excited about JTEC’s potential and am grateful that other people see that too!
