Composite Materials Help to Reduce Enviromental Impact

Bronwyn Fox, a senior lecturer at Deakin University tells us about the the importance of composite materials in the areas of aerospace, automotive and alternative energy. In particular how they have been used to create lighter weight parts which reduces the impact on the environment.

Rooftop Wind Turbine Design

A new concept in rootop wind turbines. Once developed, the estimaged cost will be $700 per unit, with 5 units being enough to power a typical house.

Creating a Offshore Wind Park Using the Windflip Installation Vessel

Computer simulation of how the windflip offshore wind turbine installation vessel works to create an offshore wind park.

Optimizing Wind Turbine Design

A short video beautifully demonstrating how wind turbine design is optimized.

Lend Lease Ventures Involvement in Clean Technology

Anthony Pascoe, CEO of Lend Lease Ventures tells us about their $100m investment fund that focuses on clean technology. He goes on to explain why Lend Lease is interested in this arena, in particular the areas of energy, water and building technologies and why they are investing in emerging growth companies with viable commercial technologies.
