Solar Slivers lower cost of solar power


The Australian National University’s Centre for Sustainable Energy Systems have been awarded the Sir Alan Walsh medal for their work developing solar sliver cells. The technology brings the cost of generating solar electricity down well below the cost of proposed clean coal solutions and promises significant opportunities for commercial solar power generation. Origin Energy has invested $30million in the technology and has built a pilot plant in Adelaide. It currently seeks an investment partner for large scale commercialisation of the technology.
