Students from UNSW’s Sunswift team break the electric car world record for speed over a distance of 500km/h.
Research shows rooftop solar exports are higher than most estimates, which means most systems are paying network fees for well over half their generation.
The high storage costs are now rapidly falling, suggesting that the financial appeal of electric cars and stationary storage is set to keep increasing.
Continued measures and support for solar power will help mitigate climate-related forces which leave energy supplies vulnerable to unpredictable disasters.
ARENA commits $18.5m to solar, wind and storage project to outback town of Coober Pedy, seeking to replicate success of King Island renewable integration.
Australia’s biggest coal customers are expected to turn away from fossil fuels because solar and wind energy will provide a cheaper option within 5 years. While Australia looks to stop renewables, India and China are looking at renewable shares of up to 45%.
A team comprising of 60 students will challenge a world record this month to prove their electric car is fit for the driving public.
