Impact Pathway 1: Harnessing the Australian sun

Sunlight is the most abundant and clean energy source available. It is also one of the most under-utilised. By developing integrated technologies for harnessing (and managing) this plentiful natural resource more efficiently, we aspire to make active solar roofing and building products the default solution for all buildings.

We are developing aesthetically pleasing products and integrated systems that deliver improved multi-functional performance across solar power generation (electricity) and thermal management of buildings (heating, insulation, ventilation, shading). Innovative green designs with two or three-in-one benefits are expected to improve economic returns and drive widespread adoption.
