Australia is taking action to build a low-emissions economy. The target to reduce greenhouse gas net emissions by 80% by 2050, relative to 2000 levels confirm Australia’s strong commitment to addressing climate change and restructuring to a low carbon economy. Australia is naturally endowed with a wealth of renewable energy resources, especially solar, wind, wave and tidal and hot dry rock geothermal energy, all of which are now being mapped by the Australian Government in an online renewable energy atlas to help planners and investors. Australia has contributed to innovations in solar photovoltaic cell design and in solar thermal. Our universities hold world records for high performing silicon photovoltaic cells in most categories and have developed commercial technologies including the ‘Sliver Cell’. Our companies are developing large scale concentrating solar generation systems and pioneering the development of photosynthetic dye solar cells. Australia has led the world in the development and commercialisation of solar hot water heating. Australian researchers are progressing second generation biofuels through bio-prospecting algae and biomass feed stocks.
