13 December 2012 | Updated 13 May 2013
The Australian solar thermal research initiative (ASTRI) supports long-term research programs and aims to transform Australia into a global leader in concentrated solar power (CSP) technologies.
CSIRO, Australian universities and our US partners will be working on targeted research programs and producing large-scale collaboration on CSP across Australia.
This $87.3 million initiative will move Australia to a leading position on solar energy research by building our capability and knowledge.
CSIRO will also be part of a number of other projects, contributing to the significant US‐Australia Institute for Advanced Photovoltaics, micro-urban solar integrated concentrator centre and the ‘consumer and utility interest in active participation in the distributed energy market’ project.
