What’s powering your home? Are you connected to the electricity grid? Do you have solar panels? A fuel cell? Perhaps a backyard wind turbine? It’s totally feasible to check all of these boxes: this is what’s called a ‘hybrid energy system’.
Evergen’s weather monitoring robot house ups your solar to save you dollars
Trying to keep warm and toasty when the weather drops can have a hefty impact on your electricity bills (and the environment!). We put together some hot ideas to combat these costs.
Remote parts of Australia are facing many energy challenges – so we’re assessing how and when energy is used to help make it more accessible and efficient.
All photovoltaic (PV) panels become slightly less efficient as their temperature rises, so cooling them can lead to better energy production, especially in warm climates. This is where the idea of building solar PV farms on or near water starts to look more attractive.
We’ve created a breakthrough solar cooling technology that will help large commercial spaces to achieve lower emissions.
A salty bath could make range anxiety a thing of the past.
When looking to store and use solar energy when it’s dark or cloudy, most people think of battery devices. But when it comes to powering cities we need to think much bigger – and saltier.
We’re hosting Eighteen04, a start-up organisation that fosters other clean technology start-ups, at our Energy Centre in Newcastle
