It is essential that all new electric technology is powered by renewable energy, with any excess stored in big batteries which play a key role in backing up or 'firming' the grid. To rapidly progress to a zero-emissions economy, we need to accelerate the replacement of fossil fuels with renewable energy sources. Multiscale energy storage systems in homes and commercial buildings will also be required to ensure a stable power supply.
Our Hunter Energy Evolution video series showcases the cutting-edge innovations and potential of the Hunter region's businesses in the cleantech space.
Innovations with the potential to unlock a 100% renewable energy-powered economy now
Australia is a world leader in the uptake of rooftop solar and our technologies are leading the way.
Batteries play a crucial role in the reliable integration of renewable energy sources. Australian made battery technology is already powering production here and around the world.
We have the cleantech ready to scale up so that we can speed up deployment to accelerate Australia towards a zero-emissions economy.
The Cleantech Showcase lists examples of projects that are capable of propelling us towards a prosperous, zero emissions Australia.
This list is not exhaustive and many more comparable projects may exist.
