Renewable Energy

Researchers at the University of South Australia are working on the development of a stewardship scheme for solar panels and wind turbines.

Already, one in four Australian homes have solar – the highest uptake of household solar in the world.

Chemical engineers have found a way to make ‘green’ ammonia from air, water and renewable electricity and without the high temperatures.

The Energy Act 2020 also creates a new multi-agency program aimed at reducing carbon emissions.

Across the industry, residential solar system sales were probably up 25 per cent last year compared to 2019.

The 1.5 MW rooftop solar system will produce more than two gigawatts of energy annually.

The batteries use zinc bromide, an abundant, cheap resource that can be used safely in a wide range of environments.

Now that electric cars have really arrived, we need to build a whole new infrastructure to support it including efficient cooling systems.

As part of its RE100 commitment, Schneider Electric will rely 100% on renewable power by 2030.

New range of energy management devices cut carbon emissions by up to 15 per cent.

The world’s biggest retailer has an outsize impact on the planet’s carbon emissions – and it wants it to be for the better. It's collaborating with Schneider Electric to clean up its supply chain.

A report from the Grattan Institute suggests it’s never been a better time for steel manufacturers to invest in renewables.
