The Energy Express seminar series is designed to provide a regular forum to present and discuss a range of energy-related topics and themes. The seminars are open events, and aim to bring together industry, government, and the broader UQ community including academics, researchers, students and alumni.
The keynote speaker for this seminar is Professor Paul Meredith, Director of the Clean Energy Program at the Global Change Institute. A Professor of Physics and Director of UQ Solar, he manages a >$50M portfolio of solar photovoltaic (PV) and concentrated solar thermal research spanning fundamental technology development, systems-level integration and policy issues. This portfolio includes the world-leading Education Investment Fund Research Infrastructure Project allied to the AGL-First Solar PV Solar Utility-Plant Project. Professor Meredith will present on the newly launched Gatton Solar Research Facility, the largest solar PV systems research facility in the southern hemisphere and one of the most sophisticated of its kind anywhere in the world.
