Reason for optimism is leapfrogging - thats when a society/place that was excluded from industrial age networks leapfrogs an old system to a new one; about a third of the world never had wired telephone lines, now almost all have mobile (text version); more than a quarter of the world never had electricity grids, now microsolar is linking in;.

day 28 in praise of microenergycredits.com

we miss the late greate wangari maathai - twitter with greenbeltmovement

https://vimeo.com/microenergycredits/videos -we desperately need an open learning curriculum of bottom-up environmental solutions -its probably one of the gaps in president trump's experience of life in the developing world  - 3 videos to watch now if you care about forests  -is the world bank rise database worth a look http://rise.worldbank.org/ ?

at tsinghua university , brooking in china is led by the forer founder of beijing's thinktank on microenergy - we'd love to know china's benchmark solutions in this space

meanwhile here's a tour of some other developing regions

http://microenergycredits.com/blog/ who do you admire most in microenergy world- it seems that there is so much local context that the hope/need for this market to fast scale worldwide is going to take a new platform - perhaps blockchain

power africa was the second of obama's usaid programs designed to integrate massive public and private partberships -when we look at the thousands of contractors usaid employs we wonder how much blockchain could save in clarifying all aid ledgers of microenergy

reviews on scaling challenges include 1

a founding hero is neville williams : www.self.org comes out of his love of solar from the  days the carter administration made him ambassador to clean energy

 after being briefed by williams in around 1996 dr muhammad yunus grameen shakti was developing by mid 2000ss one of the fastest growing models by getting microfinance for solar optimal until the troubles that saw the government take back a lot of grameen's finance - elements that were win-wins- grameen phone ladies needed ways to recharge village mobiles; yunus inspired over a thousand youthful green engineers to get solar systems out there in rural areas; he had also hoped top create massive numbers of jobs for village girls with the after-service of solar installations

 microenergycredits.com emerged from some of yunus founding team

nancy wimmer wrote the book on how yunus model deserved to solar a billion and also caries on work he inspired at  http://microsolar.com/team.html

www.ashden.org runs the awars for microenergy - led by lord sainsbury's daughter sarah butler-sloss and with prince charles and vip patron

issues with solar include :
how to share any excess that one solar unit produces
batteries remain the non-green (and perhaps inefficient) part of the system
the technology has been on a moores law of downward pricing- this makes it hard to be confident of
of how fast the business model may need to evolve

indeed one of the risks of the yunus social business model is it doesnt always keep enough in reserve to deal with when technology requires another investment leap forward

we strong recommend keeping eye on paul polak's bottom up multinational models - we'd like to see one of the microenergy franchises scale to hundreds of million served

meanwhile the 15 decision culture of microenvironment services celebrated by microenergycredits resonates with us and we hope you

.my family breathes clean air
every member of my family drinks filtered water
my household environment is clean and free of soot
my children have sufficient light to do their homework at night
I have light in the morning and the evening
I create awareness in my community about clean energy
I save time by using an efficient stove
I save money on medicine and doctors because I maintain clean household environment
I save money and time by charging my phone at home
I use the time I save to grow my business
I use the money I save for my family’s future
I save by not wasting money on kerosene and wood
I take clean energy loans from my circle so I start saving right away
I earn money and respect when I help other families use clean energy in their home

I preserve the environment by burning less wood and kerosene
