Australia has some of the best conditions for harnessing solar and one of the highest uptakes of solar energy in the world. Discover how Australian inventors are helping make solar even more accessible and sustainable through transparent and flexible solar-collecting plastics and solar roof tiles.
The world is starting to embrace hydrogen as an incredible energy source. By separating hydrogen from water, it can be safely collected, stored and transported as clean energy for use in homes and industry, trucks, planes and space rockets. An Australian group has produced the world’s first domestic hydrogen battery. With just one bucket of water, it can power your house for a day. Discover the amazing potential of this clean energy.
With increasing populations and sprawling development, we need to be looking at more sustainable ways of building. Engage with exciting new materials that revive waste and reduce emissions: tiles made from broken glass and textile scraps, as well as environmentally-friendly concrete and ‘green steel’.
