Moving with the times

The last week has been one of those many instances when it’s been extremely difficult to choose which news items we run with.

The mixture of government announcements and their implications, updates on both a number of industry developments and individual companies, plus new technological developments, has kept us even busier than usual.

We always try to provide readers with a diverse mixture of informative and interesting reading, but I would particularly like to draw your attention to our new technology announcements.

These reflect how technology is continuing its implacable march onwards, with a number of implications for the future.

While we’ve covered liquid air in recent weeks, the recent conference and white paper from the Centre for Low Carbon Futures has raised the subject again and highlighted both its potential and the need for urgent action to realise the benefits of further developing the technology.

I cheerfully admit that I never imagined I would be reporting on any type of cloaking device within the pages of H&V News, but that is the subject of our other new technology announcement.

The lead author of the study claims the thermal cloaking technology has implications for heat management in cooling, electronics and energy systems.

If it had been released on 1 April, this item would have been treated entirely differently.
