Larry Marshall, Chief Executive of the CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency, told Australia’s Hydrogen Conference that he was “highly optimistic” about Australia’s future, saying the country is currently at the “forefront” of hydrogen – a position not often held by our island state and one we must “dig our teeth into.”
Evidence of Australia’s energy transition and the force with which renewables are pushing fossil fuel generators out of the mix are now glaring, with a raft of new reports highlighting different records and trends testament to the seismic shift.
Tindo Solar, Australia’s only solar panel manufacturer, has teamed up with a group of engineering students from the Australian National University to help them construct a solar race car.

Market analyst Fitch Solutions has raised its expectations for renewables in Australia, citing the country’s unrivalled green hydrogen project pipeline and its commercially viable large-scale battery storage sector.
Australian hydrogen research and development company, Star Scientific, has won a World Hydrogen Award for its patented HERO technology, which caused a flurry of excitement in 2020 and shows no signs of abating.
Why do you almost never hear about prosecutions for illegal phoenix activity? Why do some Approved Solar Retailers behave so badly? And what remains of Australian solar’s cowboy history?
