Glad to see electric buses are ready to enter the main stream. Now, if only we were doing the same thing here in nz!
An electric bus recently set a new record for the longest journey on a single charge in Denmark, when it managed to drive more than 200 miles while traveling its normal route.

INVELOX has designed a new wind turbine that promises to produce six times as much electrical power as what a conventional turbine does.

Its amazing what the boats could do in the #americascup2013 . I don't think any other boat could replicate this! And check out the crewman on the oracle boat walking across the netting during the maneuver. Well done on not ending up in the water!

India is developing the worlds largest solar power plant. It will cover over 23,000 acres of land and produce enough power for over 3 million homes! That sort of generating capacity cannot even be replicated by a nuclear or coal fired plant. 

Is it an ambitious plan? Hell yes! Can it be done? Yes. Will it be on budget and completed within the three year time-frame it has been given?Definitely not. By 2016, the'll be lucky to have completed a quarter of the plant.  I'm predicting major cost blow outs and a completion date of 2020.

A great invention! Being able to clean solar panels at night, without water will significantly increase efficencies of existing solar technology.

No idea you could do this with a cello! An awesome cover of AC/DC's rock classic 'Thunderstruck'!

Feldheim, a small town in Germany that produces it's own power from renewable energy sources and feeds back into the national grid. They formed a local co-operative that sells power back to the community at a significantly cheaper rate than local utilities. The way of the future!

Finally, a low cost, environmentally friendly battery that could potentially revolutionise the renewable energy market.

This will have to go down as one of the greatest #americascup . What a regatta. With the boats so even the extra few knots  #teamoracleusa  could produce would always end up being the match-winner. 

Well done to both crews. Good effort #emiratesteamnewzealand

An optimist, with a passion for technology and science
Introduction
Enjoy the good things in life. Like to get outdoors, meet people, experience different cultures and learn more about this vibrant world around us.

I like to post about all manner of topics. From technology to the environment.

Think outside the square, don't believe everything you hear. Inquire and investigate to find your own truths.

Some of the most interesting conversations you'll ever have are with people you've just met. - Unknown
