"Solar energy is available in vast quantities over unlimited time scales, can be harvested with minimal environmental cost using only very common materials, and has almost no military or security issues. No other energy technology comes close to these attributes. The major approaches to solar energy conversion, the photo-electric and photo-thermal pathways, are investigated at ANU to advance the photovoltaic cell, space heating and cooling, thermal receiver, thermochemical reactor and solar concentrator technologies as well as the related fundamental science and engineering disciplines." Introduction - Prof Andrew Blakers & A/Prof Wojciech Lipinski.
