Solar power is the cleanest most abundant type of energy source available worldwide. It is natural and renewable, and the creation solar energy requires little maintenance.
Just last week, it was announced a team from UNSW had achieved a new solar PV efficiency record of 34.5% which is an amazing effort, more than 10 percent higher than the previous record. With continued innovation, solar becomes even more attractive from both a financial and environmental perspective.
Professor Martin Green (from the above team) also released a study that shows solar PV has already generated flow-on benefits of more than $8 billion to Australia, and as investment increases this will only grow further.
