What can our flexible solar panels do for accessibility?

1 00:00:00,050 –>00:00:03,995 (Jyothi Ramamurthy) Hi, my name’s Jo and I’m a scientist here at CSIRO. 2 00:00:04,020 –>00:00:07,493 I’d like to talk to you today about flexible solar panels 3 00:00:07,518 –>00:00:11,009 and what they mean for accessibility to clean energy. 4 00:00:13,508 –>00:00:16,034 While conventional silicon solar panels are great 5 00:00:16,059 –>00:00:18,526 […]

Taking remote control of your electricity

[Music plays] (Brad Sparkes) It is a Cloud-based technology that can be downloaded as an app onto say your tablet or a smartphone. It enables people to actually control and monitor their energy usage in a house, and they can do that when they’re either at home or out and about. And with that ability […]

How can we use flexible solar panels for clean energy?

1 00:00:00,035 –>00:00:03,221 (Jyothi Ramamurthy) Hi, my name’s Jo. I’m a scientist here at CSIRO 2 00:00:03,246 –>00:00:06,143 and I’d like to talk to you about flexible solar films 3 00:00:06,168 –>00:00:09,068 and what that means for our sustainable energy needs. 4 00:00:11,763 –>00:00:16,800 Flexible solar is a type of technology that we’re working on […]

Printing Australia’s largest solar cells (extended version)

(Dr Scott Watkins) We’re really pleased to commission what is now Australia’s largest facility for printing thin film solar cells. This equipment that has been purchased over the last few months and commissioned in our labs here in Melbourne will enable us to print A3 size solar cells. We’ve rapidly scaled up making our devices […]

What are the benefits of flexible solar panels for me?

1 00:00:00,035 –>00:00:03,011 (Jyothi Ramamurthy) Hi, my name’s Jo and I’d like to talk to you about 2 00:00:03,036 –>00:00:07,148 flexible solar panels and what they could mean for your everyday life. 3 00:00:09,824 –>00:00:14,366 These solar films are made up of five electro-active layers. 4 00:00:14,391 –>00:00:17,764 By electro-active I mean that we use […]

Solar powered air conditioning

(Music playing) (Narrator) Over 50 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions you produce in your home are generated by heating, air conditioning and hot water. In other words keeping your home warm in winter, cool in summer with nice hot water on tap is emitting 2.5 to 5 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year. […]

What is Solar Energy?

Did you know that all of the energy we use comes from the sun? You probably know that’s true for solar panels, but the sun is also the ultimate source for energy generated by wind, water, and fossil fuels. It works like this. Heat from the sun drives the air currents and water cycle that […]
