Dickinson noted that in Asia the innovation is coming from within the region. "I don't think the developed world has a lot to offer the base of the pyramid in terms of products," he noted. "In Asia, a lot of the stuff that has had really large impact has come locally. It is something that someone has made like homemade wind turbines. There is a lot of innovation within the region." But Henneke noted that in the region where he focuses his work, there is not much time to devote to innovation.
