These are critical times for human sustainability. As our family first reported in survey of Entrepreneurial Revolution The Economist 1976- don't expect big western organisations - corporate, gov or charity, to lead most breakthrough innovations for sustainability

we would welcome help in clarifying who has truly led green innovation (and who has done the opposite)

STORIES OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS
Let's start with microsolar : the use of solar to transform lives of rural peoples who were not reached by the electricity grids of the carbon-fuelled industrial age

It would appear that the first working photovoltaic cell was invented in Bell Labs; but didnt particularly fit anything Bell wanted to commercialise

the knowledge networks of Williams and Freling celebrated this breakthrough. Williams haf been appointed in President Jimmy Carter's creation of a department of energy with the briefing to advance solar. Whilw the carbon and nuclear industries blocked solar progress - the consequence of the department of energy was to help reduce energy consumption by about 15% and to start up a lifetimes passion of Williams for microsolar. He formed the SELF network to develop microsolar mainly in India; as the wife of his co-founder Freling spoke chinese it was natural to help rural areas of china develop solar; williams shared his knowhow with bangladesh' muhammad yunus who in 1996 wanted to launch both village mobile phones and microsolar
