The solar energy future is already here

The transition to zero carbon will be one of the biggest shifts in the history of humankind. Australia could be a global leader in renewable innovation, so why don’t we invest in our future?

Fiacre Rougieux, a senior lecturer in the School of Photovoltaics & Renewable Energy Engineering at UNSW Sydney, explores this question as part of a new series from the UNSW Centre for Ideas in which UNSW academics and researchers challenge us to think about how we might not just survive, but thrive in this century of uncertainty.
