Have yourself a sustainable little Christmas
Give our planet a gift. Make your festive season more environmentally-friendly this year. We've got some tips to help you have a sustainable Christmas.
Not too hot, not too cold. What’s ‘just right’ for your solar panels?
You might think that your solar panels work best in summer, when there’s more sunshine. But how hot is too hot for the most effective generation of solar energy?
Sun and dusted! Highlights from the World Solar Challenge
Is this the world's most epic road trip? It's certainly the greenest! The sun may have set on this year's World Solar Challenge, but our solar science is on the rise.
Electricity democracy: the power is yours
If you’re looking to decarbonise, you’ve chosen a great time. Whether it’s solar panels, an EV, or a power-sharing scheme, we currently have more electricity choices than ever before.
Solar-powered electric vehicles? Guilty as charged
With more electric vehicles on our roads, our habits will change. Soon, we’ll be able to use solar and battery to charge our vehicles, and new tech means smoother charging in warm weather, using energy from our very own homes.
Chasing the sun with the World Solar Challenge
Every two years, nearly 50 vehicles travel from Darwin to Adelaide. Their fuel? Sunshine, baby! It's all for the World Solar Challenge.
Flexing our solar muscle: solar for everyone, everywhere
Australians love solar and we’re an extremely sunny place so it makes sense. But traditional solar panels have some limitations. Enter flexible solar.
A scientific show and tell with Dr Larry Marshall
We put our Chief Executive, Dr Larry Marshall up for a special episode of Q&A. But we’ve since had a lot of questions about what he raised on the show. So like Larry after smuggling all his gadgets into the ABC studios, let’s unpack all the highlights and what they mean for cleaner energy.
Simulating sunlight: lighting the way to a more efficient solar cell
As daylight saving comes to an end, we mourn the loss of sunny summer evenings. But as the days grow shorter and darker, there’s still plenty of solar energy research being done. In fact, we’re hot on the heels of a more efficient solar photovoltaic (PV) panel.
Hyper for hydrogen: our world first for carbon-free fuel
For the first time in the world, a hydrogen car has been powered by a fuel derived from ammonia, thanks to our hydrogen membrane tech. And now that tech is being commericalised to help bring a hydrogen industry closer to reality.
How hydrogen power can help us cut emissions, boost exports, and even drive further between refills
Hydrogen has several advantages over other energy carriers, such as batteries. It is a single product that can service multiple markets and, if produced using low- or zero-emissions energy sources, it can help us significantly cut greenhouse emissions.
