KARACHI: A Pakistani, Khizr Imran Tajammul, has won the first prize at the fifth One Young World summit in Dublin at the Social Startup Competition, techjuice.pk
At the competition, Tajammul shared his idea to research and manufacture affordable energy solutions for communities with low income. Further, he also wants to utilise the potential of solar energy in Pakistan and make it more accessible.
Tajammul feels that solar water heating has great potential and ‘greenhouse technology’ in Pakistan can prove to be more efficient and affordable as opposed to using evacuation tubes.
Tajammul formed an organisation with his friends by the name of Jaan Pakistan, and the organisation has received $20,000 thus far in prize money and is planning to use the money to design their first product; the solar water heater.
One Young World was founded in 2009 is a UK-based not-for-profit that gathers young individuals from around the world and gives them a platform to showcase their ideas.
