Inventor of EZ Charcoal Stove says energy crisis blessing in disguise

The stove

Like a lot of his fellow Sri Lankans, Riyad Ismail believes that the future of the country depends on independence from the oppressive and nonsensical pricing of oil. Unlike them however, he has actually done something to back up his beliefs.

Meet the inventor of the EZ Turbo Stove… an energy conserving stove that allows for significant savings over LPG gas, clean burning and a host of other benefits. It was also this innovative product together with an exemplary business plan that resulted in him winning the country’s first ever Business Plan Competition, where he beat over 50 entrants to earn the coveted top prize. It is no wonder then that a man such as this – an inventor, entrepreneur and modern-day renaissance man, an advocate of creative thought, ‘undaunted’ perseverance and belief in oneself – considers today’s global energy crisis to be nothing short of a blessing in disguise.

Mr. Ismail points to man’s own shortsightedness as a cause for today’s global energy crisis: “When the price of oil was not significant, we lost sight of the need to work towards cost effective and environmental friendly solutions to our energy needs. The escalating energy costs have prompted many scientists and leaders across the world to put their thinking caps on and divest their energies to come up with less expensive and more importantly, sustainable alternatives.”
