Making solar a reliable, stable power source for Australia's energy future – including solar thermal systems and next-generation cells.
We are leading the way in the development of low cost, environmentally friendly production methods and flexible materials that could change how and where photovoltaic energy can be generated.
Primary topic: Solar energy
We are developing new technologies and systems which use solar thermal energy to provide low emission cooling - or heating - for buildings and refrigeration for food storage.
We are leading the way in concentrated solar thermal power (CSP) research, specialising in high-temperature central receiver systems.
We are using solar energy to generate hot and pressurised ‘supercritical’ steam, at the highest temperatures in the world, outside of fossil fuel sources.
