About two billion people in remote areas of developing nations have no electric lighting, a commodity industrialized nations take for granted. Poor lighting in homes hinders children’s learning, affects family health and limits opportunities for a better life. Electrical engineer Dave Irvine-Halliday realized that a single 0.1 watt, white-light emitting diode supplies enough light for a child to read by.
To bring light, using modern technology’s most efficient and environmentally benign light source, to dark households, schools and temples in some of the world’s poorest, most remote villages.
This simple but revolutionary technology supplied to homes by the Light Up The World Foundation. It can light up an entire rural village with less energy than a single, conventional,100 watt light bulb.
Do you know an innovation, system, invention that could fix, heal, relief, improve and make happy Mother Earth?
