Happy new year and thank you for your contributions in 2013!

Happy new year 2013

Dear friends,

I am truly grateful for all your help and contributions to my research project. During 2013 I have met so many wonderful people with great ideas and will to change the daily life of refugees; both in Norway, Ethiopia and during conferences everywhere. I have met engineers, humantiairan aid workers  and design enterprises who are continously trying to solve the challenge of designing energy solutions that can protect the environment and improve safety and education potential and provide a future socio-economic self-reliance all at the same time.

Thank you for your time and effort and I look forward to collaborating with you again in 2014!

A special greeting to the Gaia Association in Addis Abeba, UNHCR in Ethiopia, ARRA, NRC, HoA-REC&N, Mekelle University, FWFWCA, K8 Industrial Design, New Energy Systems, Green Development, Lene Kilde and Jack Bull for workshop participation and to the Gaia Association for their excellent assistance during our trips to Eastern Ethiopia.
