The Social Web vs. Electrical Grids

November 10, 2015

When global crises erupt - whether they are natural disasters, riots or the Ebola outbreak - we tend to immediately think big picture solutions. How will governments react? What policies and NGO’s will save the day?

But what if the solution were smaller and less centralised? In fact, new research shows that the data collected by mobile phones could be the fastest, easiest and best way to respond to crisis situations. Because we carry them everywhere, mobiles are the simplest way to track population movement and physical trends in social networks.

The ‘chicken and egg’ debate is common when discussing hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), what does come first: the refuelling infrastructure or fuel cell vehicles? Last week Intelligent Energy attended the opening of the first public hydrogen fuel station close to the M1. Owned and operated by ITM Power, the station produces its own hydrogen on-site via a wind turbine – and is a sign that both ‘chicken’ and ‘egg’ are developing together, and with good pace.
