Just think if they put that time, energy and money into something that could have made something productive.
Seems like they are trolling for a big fat grant so they can spend a tiny bit of it to prove it will never be feasable and pocket the rest.

They did this in the U.S. at one time, so the government and the "green agenda" made it much easier to pull off. Now if you want millions of dollars of "research money" you dont even need to come up with an original con, all you have to do is start up a small fly by night solar panel company identical to all the other ones that have failed over the past few years and we will gladly give you hundreds of millions of dollars so you can go bankrupt 6 months later.

Ancient get rich quick scam is to borrow big money, siphon it to related corporations, then bankrupt the company that borrowed the money. Mehdi Gabayzadeh (google the name) made $300,000,000 that way.
