Energy Innovation Contest

Last May we entered a contest called the Energy Innovation Contest sponsored by the Inter-American Development Bank. They were looking for innovative ways to deliver energy to poor people in Latin America and the Caribbean. We are still waiting to find out if we made the short list or not.

I found out today that there were over 1000 entries to this contest. I think they will be distributing twenty, $200,000 prizes. That's about 1 in 50 applicants. They published a map showing the number of applications from each country. Ours is one of the 38 from Honduras.

Obviously, we really hope to get one of these prizes/grants. It would enable us to operate for over a year, and get our technologies and methodologies ironed out.
