Concrete Proposal towards “Hunza Power Supply Company”

Brainstorm: Concrete Proposal towards Hunza Power Supply Company”

Kinetic energy of water flow in a stream or river is a renewable source of energy abundantly available in our region. Harnessing this source through well established methods is both capital and time intensive. I am suggesting an alternate technology suited from affordability as well as indigenous manufacture en  mass. This involves use of a floating hydro-electric generator” tethered to the anchors on river bank and suited to minimum flow in winters and also swollen rivers during summers.  
1.3 billion people are without electricity, and over 800 million people depend on high cost, polluting fossil fuel generators for their power. However, over 71% of the planet is covered with slowly moving water in rivers, canals, and ocean currents.

A huge, untouched global market exists to provide electricity where it is unavailable, and also to replace the millions of fuel-burning generators currently supplying power at very high cost.

Objective: To provide electricity to each village independently through self help and gradually increasing the capacity to meet entire demand needed towards economical transformation. Another associated aspect: For pumping water from rivers to irrigate barren lands.

Inspiration

Lets see and create something that has the same look and feel that can be seen in this video I found the other day.

Prototype Development and functionality Tests

  1. Need interested youngsters ready to go for a career in this field to participate.
  2. Collaboration by government and established CSOs such as AKRSP is highly desirable.
Please feel free to add or update these if you think I missed anything!

Experience Shared:    On the other hand, don’t under-estimate what one person looking to change their piece of the world can do. Before I bought the FITZ Waterwheel company, I had been through some hard times. Now 6 years later, I operate 1250 kilowatts of generators commercially, providing clean, environmentally safe power to over 1000 homes. I hope you have as much fun and satisfaction with your waterwheel, whatever the size.

CHINA-PAKISTAN MOU, VIDEOS

Asian Scene: Asia’s hydropower technical potential amounts to about 5,980 TWh/year, accounting for 37 percent of the global potential, while the total generation in 2011 amounted to about 37 percent of the economically exploitable generation. Three countries accounted for more than 75 percent of total generation: China (61 percent), India (10 percent) and Turkey (5 percent). Generation in the rest of non-OECD Asia3 amounted in the same year to 182 TWh, about 22 percent of the economically exploitable potential. Russia’s hydropower potential amounts to 1,670 TWh/year and accounts for about 10 percent of global hydropower potential.

 MOU

Background:
A “road map towards a Better Tomorrow has been proposed since 2005 by Brig Hisamullah Beg SI (M). The top priorities in this mission are development of energy and human resources through “Self Help” efforts of civil society in the region.
Present MOU has been drawn to ensure that the responsibilities for each member of the team are clearly laid down so that this particular effort in realizing an indigenous design of a “Floating Hydro Electric Generator” is successfully concluded.
The salient points of MOU are:
1.     Finances:
 Brig Hisamullah Beg SI (M) will invest the amount towards development of a prototype illustrated by him through the sketches in Fig-1 and Fig-2
2.   Fabrication:
Will be done in accordance with the manufacturing drawing in Baig Engineering Factories in Gilgit owned and supervised by Hayat Baig resident of Rahim Abad Gilgit.
3.   Accounts:
Auditable accounts will be maintained by Baig Engineering separately for the topic
4.   Expense Head:
a.     Materials
b.    Labour Charges
c.     Services
5.    The progress is visualized according to the monitoring schedule placed on the shared drop box folder titled PROJECT.
Modifications/changes will be incorporated through mutual discussions and also reflected in the shared documents.
6.   The venture is basically motivated from TKN concept and participation by LSO/WOs/VOs towards Self Help. However it could also be considered as a business venture for which a separate “Business Plan” will be drawn through mutual agreement.
7.    Agreed on:
a.     Brig Hisamullah Beg SI(M) Baltit Hunza- Proponent
b.     Hayat Baig- Owner and Chief Executive of Baig Engineering Gilgit- resident of Rahim Abad.
c.      Faisal Hayat- Mechanical Engineering Graduate and trainee partner of the team.

Any of the definitions existing implies two important aspects viz,

a. Consultation and
b. More than 50% vote.

Let us analyse the election results for Hunza:

Year    Eligible    Voters    Votes Cast    Votes for Winner    Percentage    Remarks

2009             34066               18521                5324                 15.62%       84% opposed

CONCLUSION: On average More than 80% eligible voter have opposed the winning candidate.

With compliment to General Azam: WE  NEED  MORE  PROVINCES -- TO REDUCE CORRUPTION & IMPROVE  GOVERNANCE !!!
Pakistan is the "Highly Centralized Fraud Democracy" of the World where One PM and 4 CMs Control the whole wealth of the country. Rest have no powers but subservient. See attached analysis
Pakistan's fraud democracy and electoral system has to be changed before any new election. This 1850s colonial power launched system will NEVER change things for Pakistan. 80% villagers are at the mercy of local police and jagirdars.
The only way to move forward is: change of system by force. 
Any assembly under current system will not vote for any positive change. 

​A
s I personally told Dr. Qadri face to face & sent PTI e-mails
​, ​
Dharna should have demanded the following :
1. Creation of 6000 City Governments with full powers like Turkey's 3000, China's 47,000 and USA's 19,700. Proportionaltely Pakistan needs 6000. 
2. Presidential System with direct vote. While all ministers be picked on merits.
3. Pakistan has 30 divisions and 5 admin units - be converted into admin provinces - elected governor & no CMs (No world democracy but India with few has CMs and ministers - A big expense)
In current system IK will have difficult chance because of rural vote, who rule cities as CMs and Ministers and destroy the. Karachi is best example of not have core of dmocracy: City Government not Baldiati Minister. Pak democracy had manufacturing defect and well not progress even in the nest 70 years under current system. 

Creation of 6000 Powerful City Governments, Presidential System and 35 Administrative Units are the only Solutions for Governance and Economic Development of Pakistan. An International Comparative Analysis with Centralized Pakistani Democracy Abstract: Pakistan’s resources and potential are underutilized and mismanaged. GDP Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) should have been $2 Trillion+. Pakistan is the only country with four provinces when compared with rest of the world. It has not changed 1850s British system which does not even exist even in UK. Analysis given below reflects how disconnected Pakistanis are from reality. Solutions: Three levels of elected offices for better governance to serve people and to solve problems are best for Pakistan: Mayor – Governor – President. There are 30 Divisions of Pakistan and 5 administrative areas, be converted into 35Admin Units, while City Governments be established immediately. There are 19,429 municipal governments in the United States. Many small towns use the council-manager system (most counties have this system) China has 47,000 large & small City Governments, and Turkey has 2950 Mayors. Almost all large cities in the USA, EU, China, and many parts of the world have strong mayor systems. China, USA, and many countries have provinces, counties, cities or municipalities and towns or villages. Abolish provincial ministries & save billions.
Country    Population Provinces GDP PPP 2015 Police, Security, Water, Electricity, & Jobs
Pakistan    200 Million 4 $731 billion Centralized under CM & IG Private Sector
Turkey       76 Million 81 $1.589 trillion City Government & Mayor
Iran            66 Million 30 $1.371 trillion City Government & Mayor
Japan       127 Million 47 $4.830 trillion City Government & Mayor
Indonesia 240 Million 32 $2.842 trillion City Government & Mayor
Vietnam     90 Million 58 $553 billion City Government & Mayor
Nigeria     183 Million 37 $1.092 trillion City Government & Mayor
Egypt         89 Million 27 $1.010 trillion City Government &Mayor
Philippines 101 Million 80+39 $741 billion City Government & Mayor
France        64 Million 26 $2.647 trillion City Government & Mayor
Italy           58 Million 20 $2.171 trillion City Government & Mayor
Germany    81 Million 16 $3.834 trillion City Government & Mayor
Mexico     111 Million 31 $2.227 trillion City Government & Mayor
Brazil       206 Million 26 $3.192 trillion City Government & Mayor
Russia      140 Million 83 $3.718 trillion City Government & Mayor
USA         313 Million 50 $17.950 trillion City Government & Mayor
Thailand     68 Million 76 $1.108 trillion City Government & Mayor

Pakistan Defense forces in each division can be used for infrastructure development like China and the USA did. Elected Mayors should be responsible for development, education, security and growth. Legislative body should have no role in administration.
