Australian Renewable Energy Agency Invites EOI For Grid-Connected Community Batteries
Last year, Australia's government made a news concerning the $200 million in grant financing for the Community Batteries for Household Solar Program. The initiative is aimed at providing community batteries to lower electricity bills and also emissions while also aiding storage of excess solar energy, and curbing grid pressure.

Australian RE Agency Grants $40 M to Drive Ultra Low Cost Solar
Ultra low cost solar was lately added as a concern technology in the Australian Government's most current Low Emissions Technology Statement (LETS). In support of ultra low cost solar, ARENA has actually set an enthusiastic target of 'Solar 30 30 30', to boost solar cell performance to 30 percent and also lower the complete cost of building and construction of utility scale solar farms to 30 cents per watt by 2030.

Scientists Make Bifacial Solar Cell with Record Power Outcome at 29%.
A team of scientists at the Australian National University have produced a bifacial solar cell with a front conversion effectiveness of 24.3% and a rear conversion efficiency of 23.4%, standing for a bifacial aspect of 96.3%. This performance represents a reliable power outcome of around 29%, well exceeding the performance of the most effective single-sided silicon solar cell. The outcomes have been individually verified by the CSIRO.
