King Faisal Foundation: al Dir’iyyah Energy Institute Challenge Need For Stopping Rain Forest Destruction and Developing New Energy Sources
Because the world has been in the early stages of an uncertain and lengthy transition from reliance on fossil fuels to other energy alternatives, it needed to understand new and alternative energy growth opportunities. This transition has had a great impact in the developing countries where economic progress has been reduced because of higher fuel prices and energy shortages. For example, tropical rain forests had been destroyed for household cooking. A need surfaced to find a way of using solar power for cooking, fuel, and other needs. The King Faisal Foundation created the al Dir’iyyah Energy Institute to provide energy awareness. (al Dir’iyyah is the name of the original home of the Saudi Royal Family). The Institute’s purpose was to research new energy alternatives, build energy project prototypes, disseminate information, and to provide policy development.
Energy Project Prototypes Transformed to International Focus
David Eller was retained to assist Dr. Jack Bridges (the late) with the development of new renewable energy systems. Eller served as the managing director of all the projects. New energy projects in solar cook stoves, energy conservation, energy management, and others were researched, developed, and organized into a large energy opportunities and awareness program Since the energy project prototypes were based all over the globe, the statistical data was organized for dissemination. Information about the new energy systems was disseminated to policy makers in the developed and developing countries.
Leadership in Energy Growth Opportunities
The Saudi Crown Prince and other members of the Saudi Royal Family were very pleased with the energy program and the accurate recording of their contributions to the developing energy world. The countless energy projects were researched, summarized, and organized into a full one hour documentary movie. Eller’s tools made a big difference in executing the project in a very limited amount of time. With Dave’s special project management process the entire project was successfully launched and documented with a full length documentary movie. Since the energy program was always completed on time and under budget, Eller helped to achieve the following results:
- Increased the world’s understanding of the Saudi’s contribution to the development of energy alternatives.
- Generated new energy prototypes and research findings for the showing to interested countries and organizations.
