Renewable energy (RE) technologies have broad application in the "developing world"- rural countries and areas that have less technology and infrastructure. In fact, bringing RE to poorer and more remote places can leap-frog technology that we have come to assume as "normal" in our modern lives, avoiding cost and environmental damage.
Ian Woofenden has been consulting, teaching, and leading projects in Central America and the Caribbean for more than a decade, and shares his first-hand experience with seven RE technologies.
Using photographs of real-world projects, stories, and lessons, Ian brings realism to our desire to help others, with insight into what works and what doesn't. Ian's Costa Rica workshops are featured in this 45-minute lecture that may inspire and entertain you.
