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 they can’t be used in every situation. 6 00:00:18,551 –>00:00:21,249 The solar technology that we’re working
on here at CSIRO 7 00:00:21,274 –>00:00:22,877 is a little bit different. 8 00:00:22,902 –>00:00:28,221 It’s thin, flexible, lightweight and it
even comes in different colours. 9 00:00:28,246 –>00:00:31,477 This solar film can be put on virtually any
surface. 10 00:00:31,502 –>00:00:35,185 It can be shipped very easily out to remote
Australia, for example, 11 00:00:35,210 –>00:00:39,421 to power mobile phone towers that have in
the past been powered by diesel. 12 00:00:39,446 –>00:00:42,940 Flexible solar panels are rollable so they
can be integrated 13 00:00:42,972 –>00:00:45,800 into equipment like tents that could be easily
deployed 14 00:00:45,825 –>00:00:49,701 in a disaster zone to provide emergency relief
to victims. 15 00:00:49,726 –>00:00:54,984 [Music plays]
