  1. This is amazing Mike, thank you, I look forward to hearing more about this and willing to assist in any way I can. Currently second year at University of Brighton studying Applied Social Science for a degree, this is right up my street. cheers Jo

      1. Hi Mike, I’m really sorry I have only just seen your reply, I live close by. I am currently doing a research study on transition for my second year at University, it has been a bit of a challenge to find an angle that I can do in a short term study. So far I am going to ask University students if they are aware of the Transition Initiative. Would it be possible to meet up for a chat, I’m very interested in the whole thing. I’ll check the boxes below to make sure I see all replies in future.
        Cheers, Jo

  2. Algae are potentially very interesting because they are one of the mechanisms for storing renewable (solar) energy; one of the big conundrums in renewable energy is storage – you always have to think of the cold December night without wind and the lights still need to be on.

    Algae can be used both to produce biomass in a simple form or, as these YouTube videos show, hydrocarbon oils. The oils are clearly very useful for transport applications.

    I agree with Mike’s point – this technology is going to take time to develop – but it might well have very good application’s in this area particularly because we both have space and water.
