Opportunity for New Energy
A staggering 1.6 billion people are energy impoverished, lacking access to electricity and transportation fuel. Most of these people live in Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, India, Brazil and other developing Asian countries (excluding China), 82% of them live in rural areas or underserviced communities.
The United Nations FOA, The World Wildlife Fund and many others draw a direct correlation between the lack of access to energy and poverty.
Communities continue the constant struggle to provide waste management and waste water treatment for their citizens. In the US, each person generates 7.2 pounds of landfill waste per day. Cities ‘treat’ sewer water to reduce carcinogens to an EPA specified level then reintroduced into waterways for added dilution. As populations grow, these challenges will grow. Burying and dilution are not sustainable solutions.
Affordable sustainable energy must be available for everyone – regardless.
“Small scale distributed production facilities integrated with communities, enabling them to
improve living standards, to eradicate poverty, to improve health and increase education…to empower their community. ”
