OT Reversal of Research in Energy Technology...


In fiscal 2006, Congress cut the Department of Energy's budget for all renewable energy programs by more than 35 percent. As a result, DOE, which funds NREL as well as other national labs, has cut the total amount it will give the lab in Golden. NREL does research in wind, biomass, solar and hydrogen technologies.
"We are going to face a very difficult year at NREL," said Bob Noun, NREL's deputy associate director. "This is a real paradox.

Broadband without electricity - no way

People Power

The major impediments to economic growth in India are in the infrastructure sector, where one finds glaring shortcomings in the state of roads, ports, electricity, and the like. There is also a crying need to improve the social infrastructure, such as the country’s education and health facilities.

Per capita consumption of electricity in India is 1/20th of per capita consumption of electricity in the United States. Over half of India’s nearly 200 million households do not have electricity. Around 70 percent rely on traditional, non-commercial fuel such as firewood, cow-dung cakes, and other agricultural waste to cook their food. Most Indians experience power outages as routine blackouts, either for a few hours every day or for days at a time.

Check out what the rate of improvement in electricity distribution is...

Plus, even if 30% don't have electricity in India, there are still 69% of the population that do have electricity but no broadband. Those are the ones who will rapidly see BB available to them over the next 7 years.

A new trend in India is the use of "phone ladies".

They get a cell phone thru microloan programs, and provide phone service to the local village(s).

Better for the farmer to pay her for the call, than to take a daylong train ride to the city, where the brokers would still lie about the price of cotton.

also available thru microloans- a solar strip charger or an old car battery and a charger

That is absolutely not true! There will still be over the air TV signals. They will only change form. Rabit ears will still be required to get local digital TV signals. Do the research.
