Manoj Bhargava : My Hero



Hardly a day passes without reading news of inventions / innovations , that will solve , a country's or the world's energy problems in such a way that pollution and global warming , will go down


Most of these focus on renewable energy, as an answer to these problems


But , many of these innovations face following hurdles :


*   They require huge investments , beyond the reach of common man


*   They depend upon sources which fluctuate thru the day ( Sun / Wind )


*   Their conversion efficiencies are rather low ( 20 % or so )


*   These devices themselves need to be fabricated in large factories


*   These devices need large " Battery Storage " ( when no wind or sun )


*   At least in case of wind power , output needs to be fed into a grid


*   Need long lead-times for installing / commissioning


*   Need large land area ( impossible for a poor person needing power )


All these hurdles get overcome by an innovation that Manoj Bhargava ( www.BillionsInChange.com ) has come up with , in the form of a simple bicycle driven electricity generator ( costing around Rs 10,000 / - ), and which can be fabricated by any tiny workshop in a small town


When pedaled for one hour , it produces ( and stores ) enough electricity to light up 12 bulbs of 100 Watts each , for 24 hours !


Some 15 / 20 such contraptions are under testing for past 2 months , in villages of North India


Villagers are simply amazed / awed / inspired  !


My suggestion to Manoj :


Can you come up with a slightly bigger version ( but with same simplicity of working ) , that can power :


#   Small Domestic appliance ( Mixer / Grinder / Fan / Fridge / Oven / TV )


#   Small Industrial tool ( Handheld drill / Soldering Iron / Welding Set )


#   Small Commercial gadget ( Xerox / Printer / POS device / Card Reader  )


#   Self Employment Device ( Car Battery Charger/including for Elec Cars ? )


#   Agricultural Device ( Water Pump / Thrasher / Cold Storage )


#   Physical Fitness Device ( Tread Mills in Gyms )



And two more request to Manoj :


#   To set in motion a REVOLUTION of unparallel dimension , enable anyone
      to download from your web site ( after due registration ) ,  DESIGNS /
      MANUFACTURING  DRAWINGS , for all of your devices , FREE of cost  !


#    Where can I send a cheque for Rs 10 lakh ( 80 G or not ) , to set up 100
      jobless youth into dignified Self Employment , using your device  ? 

      You select them


Remember what Albert Einstein said about Mahatma Gandhi ?


“  Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth  ”


It is time to follow in Mahatma's footsteps  !
