This artificial island powers 3 million homes; helping reverse global warming

Maxeon, which sells in Australia under the SunPower Maxeon brand, said a third-party study to assess the energy pay-back time (EPBT) for its Maxeon 3 panels had confirmed the energy produced over the technology’s lifetime far exceeds the energy required in its production. The EPBT assessed the cumulative energy demand (CED) over all the life …

Aussies discover a way to refine lithium that ends China’s monopoly

Scientists at ANSTO together with Lithium Australia Limited (LIT) have developed a world-first technology to extract more lithium from lithium mining waste. The new technology enables the majority (>95%) of the lithium value to be recovered with vastly reduced energy inputs as compared to conventional processing. Innovation like this puts Australia in a good position …
