-- he is a green energy Chief Executive Officer who says no more government subsidies for his industry the wind industry is exactly what -- The industry produces a product that isn't as efficient or cheap -- it might be if we focus less on walking the political system.
And more on research and development joining us now is Patrick and it.
He's the CEO of the time and energy group Patrick what -- pleasure to have you -- -- this morning -- for joining us.
Thank you for having me good morning what exactly what will kind of research and development do you want to see what what kind of -- search for.
What would help your industry.
If executive spend more power they're engineers rather than the accountants and lawyers actually developing new products rather than.
Stay in you can understand the reason there's so much money and and subsidies that.
-- executive -- -- and most of their time thinking about those subsidies and their access to them rather than.
When engineers may be suggesting -- farce animations.
If you took away the subsidies from your company for example we just took him away you know getting more money from anybody outside -- -- from the government.
Could you swim.
Oh yes absolutely.
When is a great idea in windy areas.
Where people need electricity the result of Apollo the policies of bend it.
Wind farms have gone -- less windy areas and as you go to less windy.
Area you have to charge more.
For every kilowatt hour unit of electricity that people buy -- to be able to make.
Make a return to make -- competitive return what does the tango energy group make.
Mostly we make blades for wind turbines but we also develop when farms.
It -- make the place went for four.
Wind -- in China and we develop wind farms in the US it seems to me there's two problems with wind energy when great idea of it -- -- problems with electricity produced -- -- You can't store it.
So when the wind really blows and you already generating a lot of Jews can't stories.
A number two you can't transmit it over the power lines without losing a lot of the -- that you created in the first place.
I'm all right.
You're absolutely right electricity is very difficult to store with the work -- battery now we've been Americans and people all over the -- been working on.
Electricity stored -- batteries for her for years and years and years and storage.
Happens very well and in -- -- for gas pipeline happens very efficiently and year and I've.
Car gas tank it happens very efficient efficiently.
With water behind hydroelectric dam I'm certain plenty of ways to store.
Energy very efficiently electricity is just not one up them a we close if we've done all -- research over all these years we can close.
How I can't answer that they're people that can.
That invests in battery technologies much more than I have and name make tremendous advances.
Our car better advances -- -- and reducing the amount electricity that you're iPhone needs or the -- any electrical component.
Needs but they're folks that can answer that question better.
But I could see your argument if you did focus on research and development and he came -- with a -- a storage mechanism that electricity.
You'll wind turbine blade business would really take off because that it would be economical.
To put -- -- and areas where there's not that much wind but when the wind blows you can still what you produce I understand -- point.
Well thank you.
I'm sorry somebody was in the IR AMR company would think that place they handcuffed us I said -- and thank you up the F Brett welcome back.
Is storage storage assisted and will always be difficult and and -- makes sense and windy areas makes a lot of sense of windy areas where.
People have a hard time connecting to -- you know if you can't get to other sources of electricity -- is a really good solution that.
Can't even coal fired plants gas fired plants.
Produce electricity much more reliably we need to decide as Americans as people around the world.
If we wanna sustained an industry -- wanna sustain communities to sustaining communities is actually.
Much better for our business and not in the long run.
We can forget that it are.
Rate -- are also taxpayers and when you wind up saving money through subsidies he did you turn the ratepayers and taxpayers and to.
Double payers for the same product Patrick you -- a breath of fresh -- -- the -- but we really appreciate -- being with us.
Thank you -- coming out of -- good thank you for having me thank you with.
