Our Virtual Power Station project is ensuring that distributed generation sources (e.g. rooftop solar panels) can support our evolving electricity grid.
Despite our sometimes heated national debate about our energy future, Australia is well positioned to benefit from innovative low emission technologies. No matter which avenue we take to cleaner energy, our energy-rich resources means there are opportunities for Australian businesses – and cheaper energy for Australian consumers. That’s the conclusion we reached in our Low Emissions
A new report predicts a boom in household solar and batteries as Australia’s electricity networks move to a more sustainable footing, with some states poised for a 500% boost in rooftop solar.
What if we could avoid blackouts at times of peak demand by making more supply available while reducing the demand for electricity? Our Virtual Power Station project is investigating how to do just that!
The Urban Living Lab, a new collaboration with Celestino, will use the rigours of science to make the future of Australia’s cities more liveable, resilient, and sustainable.
Faced with the rise of renewable energy and limits on carbon pollution, we suggest what kind of future awaits the grid.
They may look like bathroom mirrors and provide a great background for a selfie, but our solar thermal heliostat mirrors are hitting the world stage to help China meet its renewable energy targets.
Our world-class Energy Centre has a had a face lift – sporting new solar photovoltaic technology which will save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 23 tonnes per annum.
Our new research co-operative with Solafast and Norwood is advancing our printed solar films to make them a viable product for industry.
