About the seminar:
Solar-generated energy is expected to play an important role in contributing to global energy supply in coming decades. The solar industry is expanding rapidly worldwide and Australia especially has a vast and largely untapped solar resource. However, technology to harness the sun’s energy is still relatively early in its lifecycle and substantial public and private investment is required to improve and lower the cost of solar energy technologies to make them more cost competitive relative to traditional sources of energy generation. 

The Australian Solar Institute (ASI) aims to help consolidate Australia’s leadership position in solar R&D globally as well as accelerate the commercial deployment of solar technologies by directly investing in excellent R&D projects that advance Australian innovation in solar photovoltaic and concentrating solar thermal technologies. The ASI’s research investment portfolio includes projects led by Australian research institutions, in some cases in collaboration
with major global industry partners, as well as by Australian companies. Key challenges remain in ensuring that cutting-edge R&D is complimented by the necessary investment to move solar technologies through the innovation chain and in capturing the economic and technical learnings of large-scale deployment programs, including the Australian Government’s Solar Flagships initiative.
