Solar Guru Highlights Importance of Solar Cell Technology

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.

I took an interest in the Australian energy sector close to ten years ago and since then have monitored the trends, technologies and direction of the Australian Energy Market. I was drawn to the Australian solar market in 2008 and since then have worked heavily in the field. I am partnered with national and international solar energy companies, from manufacturers of solar panel and inverter technology, online software developers that introduce tools to quote, monitor and manage solar power systems and media organisations who like myself, closely monitor the solar and renewable energy sector.
