A roadmap to rapid carbon emission reduction has suggested the nation add 2.4 GW of generation capacity next year as part of a 15 GW new-solar target this decade. The claims of solar-plus-storage should be ignored for now, according to a new policy document, because batteries will make PV less competitive with coal.
Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a device they say could “turbocharge” a single-junction silicon PV cell, pushing the technology beyond its theoretical limit to efficiencies of 35% and higher.
With pressure mounting on the world’s governments to turn their back on the fossil fuel, China and peers in South East Asia, Europe and South Asia could help deliver a coal-free future at the COP26 climate summit planned in Glasgow in November.
The new REC N-Peak 2 solar panel is REC Group’s third product release in as many months.
An increasingly dynamic low-carbon hydrogen market has seen a deluge of government support, corporate commitments, announced projects and even bystander intrigue over the past 18 months. We believe this activity amounts to a paradigm shift which will see green hydrogen – hydrogen created from the electrolysis of water using renewable energy – emerge as a key element of the energy transition.
South Australia’s transition to a renewable energy future has taken another step forward with Australian Gas Network’s Hydrogen Park South Australia production facility now online, delivering green hydrogen into its gas distribution network in Adelaide.
Queensland-based Hypersonix Launch Systems has announced a partnership with BOC and its Bulwer Island Renewable Hydrogen Production and Refuelling pilot project. The deal will see Hypersonix use green hydrogen produced by solar electrolysis as rocket fuel to launch re-useable satellites into lower earth orbit.
Just days after Australia’s first ever hydrogen vehicle refuelling station opened in Canberra, Toyota’s former manufacturing site in West Melbourne became home to the second ‘future fuel’ station.
Huawei has launched its latest cutting edge FusionSolar Smart PV offerings at a special industry event in Sydney to meet the growing demands for smarter solutions in a booming Australian solar sector in which 4,000MW of new capacity was added in 2020 taking total capacity to nearly 20,200MW.
Award-winning and globally recognised Four Pillars gin distillery, which produces its premium product in Healesville, Victoria, has utilised Sustainable Australia Fund low-interest financing to solar power its stills, save money, and take a load off the grid and the environment.
