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
A world-first was achieved this week at the University of New South Wales who found a way to improve the light-gathering ability of solar cells.
One of our Solar Hackathon teams stayed up all night thinking about the sun … and then it dawned on them! This is just one of the many bright puns that went down at our recent Solar Hackathon at our Energy Centre in Newcastle. We invited cutting-edge software developers, designers and bright business minds
Scientists have discovered that a rare red bread mould with electro chemical properties that could one day be used to charge mobile phones.
