Husk Power Systems – show us the light!



http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/04/education/edlife/ideas-huskpower-t.html?_r=1

Manoj Sinha and Charles Ransler won the social entrepreurship award for a brilliant idea that can indeed impact the lives of millions of Indian farmers. These guys are using their proprietary technology of converting rice husks into methane that supplies electricity to rural India. Currently piloted in a few villages, they have plans of expanding to about a hundred. It’s amazing how a small idea can have scalable effect! I find it inspiring to read about such accomplishments. I envy talented people involved in creating business plans that have far reaching social benefits.
