Good start for a first clean energy conference in Lebanon. Hopefully future conferences will have more presentations from successful projects in the M.E., experts from UAE's Masdar University, and serious research projects conducted by Lebanese Universities and funded by international institutions to explore Lebanon's full potential from renewable energy (solar, wind, hydro, micro-hydro, wave, etc), funding mechanisms in developing countries, net-metering, path for public-private projects, solar-based EV car rechargeable network starting with institutions, and gradual cost-efficient plan for electrification of cars and the transportation system.

Forget clean energy. How about just, energy. Can we have just energy in Lebanon? Is that too much to ask?
