Over the course of the last decade, it has become increasingly clear that in order to build a sustainable earth, we need effective forms of renewable energy.
The focus of Mick's research has been the development of a novel design for a high concentration photovoltaic module. Mick will provide a brief overview of the current status of solar power generation and the potential for solar power to account for a more substantial portion of utility power generation. The key areas covered will be the current economics of solar power, the effects of policy and government intervention, and a broad overview of research and development of new solar technologies.
Are you interested in learning more about the present and future of solar energy? Come join Mick and Green Sanctuary as we delve into the wonderful world of renewable energy to build a better tomorrow.
