Many developing countries are consistently ridiculed by the inefficiencies and disabilities proven in the area of power and energy management. Infrasctructural equipment of the society is sometimes the least of the worries.
Human capacity development and wealth creation seems mostly the focus in a situation where poverty below certain dollars per person per day is clearly defined and exampled. The school of thought that prioritizes the mind enablement is usually true to its education support system. But oops, when education is defined by the beautiful paper you get when done, rather than the experience and learning that outcomes, you sure bet this line of consideration is simply getting nowhere with no action in place. Unemployment and underemployment, both fancy names for “no job” quickly permeates the heart of many as it seems true that there is actually no workplace or office space available for all. Usually, one should recommend entrepreneurship as everyone or maybe anyone can become a “boss” as fast as possible. But then again, sad as it sounds, the “Standard oils” will always rise, capitalise on the wisdom, foolishness and loopholes created by ignorance and “incapable” minds. It’s a vicious cycle! I know right?
Back to the same place we started. Energy and power management. Improve education. Well, there’s almost no capital- both human and financial, no constant energy supply for an enabling environment to learn all you can. Okay, forget about that, what about entrepreneurship? Allow vocational studies, trade-learning, and business development strategies. But there’s no infrastructure, or cheap form of constant and environmentally-safe energy systems in place. All said and done, think of any nation that grew without any dominant source of energy and efficient management system in place. None is the country!
So what then is energy?
Capacity of a physical system to do work is a common definition of energy. Is that all that there is? Start a read at https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy and please join me next on Energy 1002: What really is Energy?
