In a broadcast this week on Boardroom Radio Australia (www.brr.com.au), Dr Justin Blows led a roundtable discussion on the topic of solar energy with the following contributors: Richard Caldwell (Chairman, Dyesol), John Grimes (CEO, ANZ Solar Energy Society), Alistair Sproul (Associate Professor UNSW School of Photovoltaic & Renewable Energy Engineering) and John Dyson (Investment Principal, Starfish Ventures).
The interactive broadcast allowed listeners to submit questions as it was in progress, directing the focus of the discussion.
The broadcast explores the future of solar power as a viable renewable energy, and the medium to longer term commercial opportunities that exist in this area. It was noted that Australia is currently behind other countries such as the US, China and Germany, in solar power usage and development. Archaic government policies in the renewable technologies area, when compared with other countries, was one reason given for this.
