During the last month, we started our research seminar. It is held on Mondays morning, jointly with the Institute of Energy Science and the Water-Environment-Oceanography in USTH. Nam opened the session with a strong talk on rice husk gasification in Cambodia.

The report is available.

My SMI project at CNRS did not go through, but are not waiting passively on the reply from our other proposal, the one about organizing a Biomass Energy Week in December. We have no less than four more projects at various stage of readyness: helping MOIT to map renewable energy resources, organizing a course on energy efficency for energy services companies, looking at the market for rice husk gasification cookstoves and connecting the first equipments for the smart grid lab. Like the Goat, we have lots of optimism !

Wishing you and your relatives a new lunar year of promise and prosperity,
