Future Makers in Australia

Last night I attended the premiere of the Australian documentary film "The Future Makers", which displayed world leading renewable energy solutions, and was followed by a panel of some of those who were featured in the movie. These included Dr David Mills of Ausra and Dr Robert Dane who designed the Solar Sailor boat.

The movie also showed the hot rocks technology which is being developed in the Cooper Basin, wave power experiments where the waves action was being modelled on nature, and Dr Keith Lovegrove's thermochemical storage systems. It was a great little movie, and one I think that should be mandatory for all those who are trying to band aid the current power generation systems. The message in the movie was about re-thinking our power sources, and working together for this new future.
