.ABC RADIO NATIONAL – BETWEEN THE LINES FEB 18 2016

85 years ago English judge Lord Moulton, said that human action can be divided into three domains. At one end is the law at the other is free choice and between them is the realm of manners. In this realm Lord Moulton said, “lies a domain in which our actions are not determined by law but in which we are not free to behave in any way we choose. In this domain we act with greater or lesser freedom from constraint, on a continuum that extends from a consciousness of duty through a sense of what is required by public spirit, to good form appropriate in a given situation”.

Toyota to trial hydrogen car in Australia

toyota HYDROGEN

Toyota is bringing one example of its hydrogen-powered Mirai to Australia.

The hydrogen car has taken one step closer to becoming a reality in Australia, with Toyota announcing plans to import a single example of its new Mirai electric car.

While Toyota will not sell the car to the public, the groundbreaking machine will be at the core of a campaign intended to raise awareness surrounding what hydrogen cars can offer.

On sale already in Japan, Europe and the US, the fuel-cell powered Mirai transforms hydrogen into electricity and water, giving it an emissions-free range of around 550 kilometres.

Toyota will exhibit the car at Sydney’s World Hydrogen Technologies Convention in October before using it in a road show intended to win over government authorities, the public and press in Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney.

Toyota Australia president Dave Buttner says that although the Mirai offers cutting-edge technology, it is too early to sell hydrogen cars in Australia.

SOLAR BREAKTHROUGH – SILICON NANO WIRES

Using nanotechnology, the firm is looking to develop a “super” solar cell that could eventually generate as much as twice the power as conventional solar cells. Double the power? Yes, but that’s not all folks as the technology will also reduce the cost of solar cells. According to this October 16 MIT Energy Review article, the firm will develop “…silicon nanowires that can improve the performance and lower the cost of conventional silicon solar cells”.
