Nearly half of people on Earth live in rural isolation, lacking access to the most basic human services. Evan Thomas heads up Portland State’s SWEET Lab (Sustainable Water, Energy and Environmental Technologies Laboratory) where his team of researchers are not only designing household solutions like gravity water filters and clean burning stoves, they are also developing technology to remotely monitor each unit, creating a whole new model of accountability for international sustainable development. What’s more, they are building in reliable streams revenue for these projects through carbon financing.
