„Generating electricity is a simple technology, more than a century old. You figure out a way to spin a turbine generator, either with steam or flowing water. Then you wire out the electricity to users. The technology comes a little more complex when you have to choose the optimal way of doing this … But on the whole, it isn’t rocket science. Any third world country can do it.
The complicated part, for reasons not easily fathomed, is the politics.“
