Turning point: the vetiver

After several tries, and almost two years of research, I find on the web this perennial erbaceous plant that satisfies all the conditions when planted in rows.
I get in touch with the network run by a bunch of enthusiasts and I find out that at the moment the plant is being studied by the National Italian Concil for Research (CNR) at the Catania University (Sicily) in order to generate power with it.
I therefore get in touch with professor Sardo who runs the research, a tall red haired man, living memory of past invasions in his land, charismatic person who also conducts studies on salt tollerance and other factors like phitodepuration applications.
And I start hassling him.
