In an unprecedentedly challenging year for the world, ACAP was proud to be able to continue our world-leading photovoltaic research activities, even in the face of the many logistical challenges of the COVID pandemic.
Our researchers at ANU, Monash University, the University of Melbourne, the University of Queensland, the CSIRO and at the University of New South Wales collaborated on award-winning and pioneering new developments in solar cell materials, efficiencies, increased lifespan and application potential, as well as investigating critical emerging opportunities in panel recycling, and producing wide-ranging data analysis of consumer energy usage that will lead to informed policy implementation in the rapidly accelerating switch to a renewables-lead energy mix.
All of this work was made possible thanks to the generous funding of the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, and from our commercial industry partners.
