Years ago i witnessed a man hitting his girlfriend in an alleyway, thinking it was the right thing to do i told him to stop. After another couple of verbal exchanges they both turned on me, i'll never make that mistake again.

Can anyone tell me why on earth the stirling engine isn't being used in equatorial countries for energy production?

Every time i go on holidays (from Ireland) to a hot, sunny country i am dumbfounded as to why they are not all over the place. They can be made with recycled materials by anyone with reasonable technical ability and are more efficient the PV cells (after some fine tuning).

The stirling would pay for itself in a matter of weeks, especially if you made it out of clapped out moped engines or whatever, the most expensive part of the whole setup would probably be for a large fresnel lens, maybe 200$ or so.
