Steve Burkle is the inventor of EiP technology. Burkle comes from a 30 year career in the technical side of hi-tech. As a hardware design engineer, Burkle is an expert in all aspects of electronics, from analog to digital, vacuum tube to solid state, systems and components. During his career as an Intel employee, he relocated to a remote homestead in the coastal temperate rainforest of Oregon, to become a pioneer in telecommuting, working remotely as part of design teams for many of today’s internet server hardware technologies. Totally off- grid, he has created a living laboratory for sustainable technology development, for which he has built systems for power generation and control, home and hot water heating, and computer networking. Real-world experience in renewable energy, information technology, and electronics, along with a strong technical background in math, physics, and engineering, provide Burkle with a unique perspective for sustainable technology innovation. Since 2009, Burkle has been working full time on research and development of the EiP wind machine, with patents filed in 2014.
