Expert Martin Green of the University of New South Wales says “Australia needs to look to Germany if it is to realise the potential of solar cell technology.
To day, being honoured by Australians, Green has been made a Member of the Order of Australia for his research and work on photovoltaics and solar cell technology.
Greens says, “Germany has been the only country that’s had a sensible long-term program in place to promote the use of renewables.”
Although some still argue that solar cell technology is not a competitive option in the fight to reduce carbon emissions, the proven solar cell technology has reached new heights and is ready for the Australian Government to kick start a new phase in the program. Green says. “the starts are aligning for conventional roof mounted solar.” My question is though, whats around the corner with this ground breaking solar cell technology.
