February 4th, 2012

Episode 198 of 649 episodes

Alexander Schey is just 26, and in the garage of a fairly ordinary house in west London where he, and a few other fellow London students, built a battery powered electric car. Then, to raise awareness of their new battery management system, they drove along 25-thousand kilometres of the Pan American Highway. But this was more than just an elaborate student escapade; as you can hear in Global Business, it has now become an interesting consultancy business.
