Summary
Known for his revolutionary home and appliance designs as well as his foot-launched aircraft, inventor Bill Lishman has repeatedly put the concept of renewable energy into practice. This program documents Lishman's journey around the globe in search of sustainable forms of power generation. At Niagara Falls, Lishman discovers the rich history of hydroelectric production, then travels to Iceland to study advanced geothermal energy facilities. Denmark's towering wind turbines and a massive solar power plant in the Mojave desert are also on the itinerary. Guiding viewers through his own spacious and naturally lit underground dwelling, Lishman shows that conserving energy through design is just as important as harnessing renewable sources
