The Union of Middle East states should develop and establish a Regional Economic Plan for the mass manufacturing of the electric automobile and the modification of “fuel cell” (hydrogen) automobiles, buses and other forms of locomotion and develop a plan for stationary fuel cell generators to provide power grids for villages and suburban housing units.
In developing such Regional Economic Plan, a Union of Middle Eastern States should offer a fossil fuel automobile exchange program in each state or kingdom to provide incentive for the modification of such fossil fuel automobiles into fuel cell automobiles, buses and other forms of locomotion but such exchange program and Regional Economic Plan should include other forms of electric automobiles such as the lithium ion battery powered forms of transportation developed by Balqon Corporation. <http://www.balqon.com/>
Alternatively, in developing such a plan, the Middle East Regional Economic Plan should utilize the battery exchange system developed by Better Place or the alternative fuel cell program developed by Ballard Power <http://www.ballard.com/>
Such a plan should include a renewable energy resource plan for a regional electric transportation infrastructure utilizing wind, water and solar power modeled after the the Portland, Oregon Water Bureau’s Powell Butte in-line hydro-generation and the Trimet transportation system.
For example, lithium ion battery packs should be mass manufactured and charged by wind turbine farms in Jordan that are patterned after those of the Columbia River Gorge (e.g. Biglow Canyon Wind Farm) and the wind turbine farms established in the Golan Heights.
In developing and promoting such a plan, the Union of Middle East states should consider developing a plan that would incorporate importing and exporting to or from the Ports of Haifa, Eilat, Aqaba [and Gaza] and the feasibility of modifying and/or manufacturing in Amman, Jordan of existing automobiles and future designs of the electric automobile (e.g. the Camel).
