The OMEGA Global Initiative (OGI) is working to establish a demonstration project for OMEGA in coastal cities.

OMEGA is a system of floating platforms that produces green energy (solar electricity, heat, biofuels), clean water (wastewater to potable water), and sustainable food (multi trophic aquaculture) all of which support a circular economy and prepare coastal cities for sea-level rise.

An OMEGA feasibility study was done with support from NASA and the California Energy Commission<http://www.energy.ca.gov/2013publications/CEC-500-2013-143/CEC-500-2013-143.html> and OGI formed as a non-profit to promote and facilitate OMEGA development worldwide (for info please see OGI website: http://www.omegaglobal.org).  We are negotiating to do a project that will improve the social and environmental conditions in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam-a UNESCO World Heritage Site<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H%E1%BA%A1_Long_Bay>; arguably one of the most beautiful places in the world.

The plan is to use OMEGA to process wastewater, produce energy, and food for Ha Long village in an inner bay and prevent eutrophication of the outer bay with the many beautiful islands.  Initially, we want to map and model all features and dynamics of the proposed site.  Our seed-funding proposal submitted to USAID includes opportunities for student interns.  I can elaborate, but is there anyone in the group that could help us?

Thanks, Jonathan
