Solar city, smart city: Transforming the urban energy landscape
B117, Glyn Davis Building (MSD) The University of Melbourne Masson Road Parkville, VIC 3010Map
Completing a rapid transition to net zero carbon is vital to Australia and the world’s future. Renewable sources of energy - and solar photovoltaics (PV) in particular - will play a key role in this transition.
The potential applications of solar PV extend beyond conventional rooftop panels and large-scale arrays. These include building-integrated technology, such as solar windows that generate power.
Our presenters, Professor Anita Ho-Baillie and Professor Jacek Jasieniak, will talk about national and global trends in photovoltaics deployment, discuss what the next generation of solar cells will look like, and how their research fits into this picture. Their talks will also explore photovoltaics work taking place within the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science.
The event will be opened by Exciton Science’s Director, Professor Paul Mulvaney. Following the presentations, Director of the Melbourne Energy Institute, Professor Michael Brear, will moderate a panel discussion, followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
Also join us for an hour of networking and conversation after the presentations, with snacks and refreshments provided.
