  • Energy Generation:
    • Solar Thermal Energy Collector - Reflects heat radiation from the Sun to a central tower via mirrors.
    • Wind Turbines - Pressures from the wind move the blades, rotating magnets around copper coils (or visa versa, creating alternating currents (AC).
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Surface Parameter Detectors (over 100 feet)
    • Head Storage (Dr. Hvit, Constance Sutton, and, though not a head, Narvik Virus)
