Below are some interesting facts on Solar Energy Activity in Australia. I have sourced the key findings of the Climate Commission’s report “The Critical Decade: Australia’s Future – Solar Energy”
1. Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems have become more and more affordable. As prices have fallen, ordinary Australians have been quietly driving a […]
Owners of home photovoltaic systems will soon be able to make their households even more sustainable, because solar PV power is also suitable for charging personal electronic vehicles. A home energy management system created by Fraunhofer researchers incorporates electric vehicles into the household energy network and creates charging itineraries.
The house […]
What is an LED?
Think light emitting diodes (LEDs) are just for flashlights and cell phone displays? Think again. Once relegated to humble indicator lights in electronic devices, LED lights have advanced at remarkable rights to enable an entirely new category of lighting that’s projected to reach $30 billion by 2025.
The below article we have sourced on solar energy innovation is a very interesting read, and highlights that Australian university research and development teams are global leaders in solar cell technology.
