INNOVATE: Engineering Change

Innovative approaches are critical to solving today’s energy crisis. There’s no single answer, and lots of teams are looking for creative solutions. This reality/documentary-style program takes viewers behind the scenes of one such effort, introducing a diverse group of scientists and engineers from Verdant Power, a “virtual” company staffed by women and men based in various locations. They have developed turbines that use the power of moving water to generate electricity. If their pilot project in New York City’s East River succeeds, this alternative source of energy could become a commercial venture. But the team members have had their work cut out for them: The powerful river current has broken a number of turbine blades, necessitating their redesign. Viewers are on-site for the installation of a turbine with newly designed blades. Politicians, investors and the media are present for the event, and a lot is at stake; tension mounts. Thrown by an unexpected failure, the team problem-solves into the night and devises a new plan—an effort that pays off when power is successfully generated.
