The Bright Future of Solar Energy

Co-sponsored by the ARC Centre of Excellence: Exciton Science. The price of solar electricity is now lower than the retail price of conventional electricity in many parts of Australia, and solar panels have been installed on over one million roofs across the country. This presentation will give an overview of the astonishing growth in solar we’ve seen to date, and what we can expect for the future, including new research on using materials engineering and nanotechnology to improve the efficiency of solar cells.
