With unprecedented human population growth, an increased frequency of climate catastrophes, and a depletion of fossil fuel reserves, governments are catalyzed to shift priorities from unchecked economic growth to investment in sustainable technologies. Inwood has a history of energy production. Energy institutions, dating back to the 1913 Macomb family’s dam to power a mill, are driven by the time’s economics. It is far from the demand for fossil fuels to wane, but the impact of how we extract the fuels can change, and a prime example is the use of algaeculture along the waterfront in the light manufacturing zone in Inwood. Algae, like other plants, use photosynthesis to convert solar energy into chemical energy. They store this energy in the form of lipid oils, which can be converted to biodiesel. The project aims to use the algae energy industry to make the community participate and learn about energy production, liberates the industrial waterfront while also provides NYC a cleaner future.
