Star Scientific Limited
Star Scientific Limited Executive Chairman, Andrew Horvath offers cut-through commentary on long-term solutions in the new energy sphere and a unique take on the way we fund critical scientific research.
I’m Andrew Horvath, Executive Chairman of Star Scientific Limited. Welcome to my blog, where I’ll share my thoughts on the critical future of the energy crisis – but it probably won’t be what you’ll hear in the popular press.
This is not a blog about carbon tax, political point-scoring and Band-Aid solutions. It’s about the bigger picture. It’s about a safe, affordable, clean energy that will last for generations to come.

Fusion offers us a glimpse of a brave new world. To get there we need to think big – and we need to do it now. Read my blog to find out more, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

A recent report in the MIT Technology Review highlighted several locations with some of the key characteristics required to promote innovative activity and commercialisation: strong IP protection; an entrepreneurial culture; and liberal immigration laws – among others. Here’s what they found about the latest hotbeds of […]
