"The centre would explore all forms of renewable energy and their role in helping to address climate change and the wind turbine would certainly be a central feature."

A deal for G24i's mobile phone chargers, centred around the revolutionary DST technology has been made with a company in Kenya. G24i has a strategy to first target markets in the developing world, where people in remote areas have little access to reliable power sources. …
