    I guess it has been difficult to follow the pronounciation of Prof. Ramchandra Bhandari. It has this “asian” accent, which is different from the British or American English in terms of speed and clearance. Anyway, for me it was helpful to copy the video URL and open it in youtube and change the settings for subtitles to English than I could see what he said. It is like a new sound for the ears, but you need to train it and I understand this better than a British pronounced English because I am used to it. And the content is very good to follow through the notes in the video. Thank you for the work contribution to produce the videos.

    Thanks very much Professor Ramchandra Bhandari for putting the video together. As usual, it gave me some pointers and threw light to the tasks / Assignment 2 required for this Week 7, supported with the aid of your examples. For me, I shall play the video again to fully digest the mathematical aspects and calculations that needs or may need to be done to complete the assignment successfully with team members. I am already familiar with some of the terminologies used, as they were used in Week 6 eg NPV, IRR< Payback Time, etc in the equation.

    Personally, I think the contents of Week 6 and Week 7 have brought this MOOC course together for greater business and economic understanding and application in our individual / company and in projects initiatives that are designed for the greater good of our countries eg Africa, Asia, Europe, etc.

    Clearly, the needs and circumstances of most of the above countries are very different from those of the advanced countries in many respects. It is therefore no wonder that most the above countries are leapfrogging in technological advancement eg renewable energy, renewable technologies and energy efficiency technologies, to mention a few.

    I sincerely thank all the Tutors for their dedication and commitment throughout this MOOC. Your support and knowledge sharing has been invaluable.

    Once again, this is a good introduction to this week’s study by Professor Ramchandra Bhandari. It is refreshing by the business/investment case consideration into the renewable power input into the agri-projects.
    Thanks Prof.

    In many small-scale business cases for rural community I have looked at, simple payback time calculation has given a good indication on the profitability of a project. Payback time should not be longer than 2 years.
