I’ve been sent a couple more links to articles that may be of interest. Firstly, it seems that Oyster Card in London has been hacked, and that similar systems based on the same technology may also be vulnerable. Readers will be heartened to know that Myki (if we ever get it) is not on this list. It probably wouldn’t have cost $1 billion if it were off the shelf though.
Secondly, have a look at this life cycle analysis of new car fuel technologies from MiT. I found it very interesting reading.
Stay tuned for a long post about the economics of electrification after the Easter weekend.
