Indigenous product

When I started digging the web for renewable energies for the world's poor, I came across lot of innovative ideas. The ideas were just great. Hats off to the brains behind them. They said: "We have created 'something' that can help the world's poor and this system can be built from indigenous materials."

Now take a close look again. There is a fundamental flaw. Most of these designs come from developed countries. What's indigenous in US is not indigenous in Indian villages. A car dumped in US is great for your work. But a car never get dumped in India !!!! So to all those innovative engineers out there, keep up the good work, just redo your design and save the world !!!
