To get electricity to households living off the energy grid, this young American has set up a rental system for rechargeable batteries. It’s a simple, efficient way to watch TV, turn on a light, or recharge a mobile phone. Clever.

Jamie, an Asian-American, lives in Africa for one simple (and very good) reason. According to him, this is one of the most beautiful sites of the green social economy of tomorrow. So naturally he’s a busy man, under pressure to succeed.
