Renewable energy twist on old tech earns award for Nelson native

If it ain’t broke don’t fix it? The old adage doesn’t fly with Tyler Podgorenko. The 24-year-old Nelson native and three other students at Red Deer College have been honoured for rethinking a technology that has its origins in ancient Egypt. Podgorenko, Spencer Otto, Michael Nosterud and James Greenough have discovered a way for ram pumps, which are designed to move water to higher elevations, to also generate clean energy.
