AUKUS innovations. When it comes to energy, the situation that Australia finds itself in seems absurd. The fact that we are blessed with more natural resources than most other countries on earth and yet, we need diesel. Surely we need to build Australia’s refining capabilities and we certainly need more fuel storage. Australia currently has less than 20 days of diesel in reserve and I’ve heard it said that “we are yet to see a solar powered armoured tank that is effective”.
