As people in Palestine continue to face economic uncertainty and high unemployment, one Palestinian has decided to help by tackling high energy prices. 

Entrepreneur Khalid Al Sabawi decided to dig deep down, literally, for solutions. He realized that the most efficient, cost efficient and environmentally friendly answer would be to harness geothermal energy found beneath the ground.

Imran Garda of Al Jazeera's "The Stream" talks to Al Sabawi about establishing his green energy business in a part of the world where young entrepreneurs are faced with the added burden of dealing with the Israeli occupation.
