I can't but help question this being a 'game changing technology'. I'm never one to rubbish innovation, or anything which helps progress the clean energy cause, but I'm struggling to see this as anything other than an occasionally useful novelty. I just can't see it as a long term, or high volume solution anywhere. Is it just me? Thoughts welcome.
