Georg Eitelhuber, 37, a native of Perth, Australia, moved to Jeddah in 2009 to teach physics at King Abdullah University for Science and Technology (KAUST). While at the University, he developed low-cost robots that aspirate dust from solar panels exposed to desert sand. He formed Nomadd Desert Solar Solutions in 2012, and raised $1 million from an undisclosed investor, as well as another $1 million from KAUST grants. Nomadd says it expects its patent-pending technology to be used in solar energy projects in Jordan and the U.A.E. Eitelhuber has an MS in Renewable Energy from Murdoch University in Australia.
