great - do the links work for you?

Natalie - Absolutely great idea and I can see now why you were attracted to our project as it focuses on economizing renewable energy technologies so that we can place these technologies within the reach of the masses. With our student focus, there is no question in my mind that we could have the resources and the motivation to bring your idea to fruition. Key here is collaboration with academia and establishment of a champion from the academic, political and NGO establishments - Possibly one of our partner NGO's may be interested. I also see many of our technologies as center piece to your program. A more detailed graphic representation of your idea would help in the business development as well as a financial plan. Also, as revenue generator, you may want to consider a rental program where space in the park is rented out with the price based on the market benefit of the program to renewable energy innovators who are interested in promoting and demonstrating their technologies. Another idea would be to bring a big name on board to sponsor the park. We have partners here as well that may be interested but we need to have something that they don't have or else they would simply do it themselves. We need the political types to lobby for the space allocation as well.

Hope this helps.

Natalie - no misunderstanding - we were just not clear enough. Updated as recommended. Thank you so much.
