a very hot topic indeed
I really want to know the scale of the approved project ? is it just to be in the uni or will it be implemented in some informal areas or experimenting in some different places ?
and what about the Anti-Coal movment are u or any of ur students involved in this ? for the non-Egyptians this movment is against building electric power stations that works with coal that some smart guys in the "decision making " place wants to start building
also there is a group called biogas people - I think they already know about STF , I'll make sure:) - now they cooperate with GIZ and Icecairo , are they involved somehow in ur project or within the students or they are a separate thing , anyway I think they might add to the discusion
and just a personal comment on the old discussion @Nadia : please don't try to get something done with the government now it will just get a bad reputation :D:D as there was something about the ambassador of Sweden will discuss cooperation chances with the new ministry ........
Finally I just remembered something I thought sharing it her in this post would be appropriate about that guy in elzabaleen (the garabage collectors ) who had the project of biogas containers on roof tops in order to get energy for the hot water needed , there was a report about him I think in Aljazeera I will search for the link , I got the chance actually to meet his wife 2 years ago and asked her about what happened to his project why I wasn't sacled up she just told me that after making the proposal for the government to get funds and get the project into action , the answer he got from the authoroty figure was " Y DO U GUYS IN EL ZABALEEN NEED HOT WATER FOR ANYWAY ? " and of course nothing has been done , I actually don't know if there was any further steps done after that or not as the we have seen lots of ministries afterwards but I don't think so
so what do u think about that story : and what other obstacles do u think face such projects
