Zebra technology, a new energy solution for generating electricity using the wind and sun, has won the backing of the World Bank and other major donors.
But critics have pointed out that it has not been proven to be an effective alternative to fossil fuels.
Zebra technologies have been hailed by some as the solution to energy crisis.
But the technology has a range of problems, and is also expensive.
For instance, the technology could not have been developed if there was a need to build a zebra power plant for China.
It has been widely predicted that the world will run out of electricity within a decade, and some governments have been urging the US to develop a zercator power system, which would generate power by capturing and storing excess wind energy and releasing it as surplus water.
This could be the solution, with zebra powering projects being launched in the United States and the United Kingdom, and a number of others.
The project, which is in the early stages, could eventually be deployed in all 50 states, said the World Resources Institute, a US think-tank.
