Solar energy

Making solar a reliable, stable power source for Australia's energy future – including solar thermal systems and next-generation cells.

  • Photovoltaics

    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.
