Dreaming Towards a Cleaner, Greener Future of Energy

By Kader Conde | Editorial, Energy, Urban Design

My name is Kader Conde. I was born in Abidjan on the western coast of the mother of all continents, Africa. I recently moved to Atlanta, just about 6 years ago on a mission to broaden my vision, experience a totally new culture, and of course achieve a greater level of education.

I graduated about a year and half ago with a mechatronic engineering degree from Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta, GA. Although I have always been aware and exposed to the rising prominence of green energy in our society, I never truly grasped its necessity. It was only in 2011, while taking part in a research project on wind turbines as student researcher that I discovered a true passion, a true calling towards the subject matter and the future of energy.

“The future of the planet depends on what I simply like to refer to as environmental peace.”

It seems as though humans are engaged in an unconscious war against their own environment, which without appropriate measures, is destined to dust as we all are. The future of the planet depends on what I simply like to refer to as environmental peace. The race is on for a safe, sustainable, and environmentally friendly energy source in order to move away from fossil fuel dependency and cut greenhouse gases emission. We’re only scratching the tip of the iceberg; possibilities seem endless. The world needs to be exposed to the greatness of the green, sustainable future of energy sources and their importance.



My dream as an engineer is to make a change not only in people’s lives but also in the quality of their environment. The goal is to use systematic approach on green energy and particularly wind turbines. I intend to produce a series of articles aiming to inform, and sensitize on all aspects of wind turbines. We shall touch everything from the most basic concepts to the most in-depth, including innovation and future aspirations. The first step is to understand their functioning, level of production, and viability cost appeal; and explore drawbacks and possible solutions. We’ll include factual examples of successful developments, as well as current projects. The final aspect will introduce research conducted throughout the world and expectations for the future of energy.

The fact of the matter is that green energy is the energy of the future for various reasons. It’s time to move away from traditional energy sources that are slowly destroying our planet. Places such as underdeveloped countries and Africa would benefit a great deal from the implementation of green energy sources.

Kader Conde was born and raised in Abidjan, Ivory Coast but has been living in Atlanta, GA, for the past 6 years. He graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Mechatronic Engineering from Southern Polytechnic State University. Kader was involved in couple research projects throughout his entire academic curriculum. It began in 2009 when he was invited as a student presenter at the Clarkston Mathematic Conference, where his topic was on the use of computer technology in problem solving. Finally, in 2011, Kader took part in a research project on wind turbine in the state of Georgia. In his personal time, he is a digital graphic artist and founder of CK Vision, a freelance company. His work spans from computer generated imagery to web design and implementation. Kader is extremely excited to be part of the PowerHouse Growers team and will strive to contribute to make the world a better place.
