The Bright Future of Solar Energy

To celebrate the UNESCO International Day of Light on 16 May 2018, Professor Kylie Catchpole from ANU is presenting a seminar at Monash University on "The bright future of solar power".

When: 12pm, Thursday 17 May 2018
Where: G29, New Horizons Building 82, Monash University, Clayton Campus

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.

Co-sponsored by the Monash Energy Materials and Systems Institute (MEMS).

Prof Kylie Catchpole will also present the seminar on Wednesday 16 May at the University of Melbourne at 5.15pm.
