Professor, The Australian National University, Australia

Title: Storage for 100% Renewable Electricity

Time: 03:00-03:30 PM

Biography : Andrew Blakers is E2 Professor of Engineering at the Australian National University. He has held several personal Fellowships (Humboldt, ARC Queen Elizabeth II, ARC Senior Research and Radio Research Board). He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering, the Australian Institute of Physics and the Australian Institute of Energy, and is a Life Member of the International Solar Energy Society and the Australian Conservation Foundation. He is a Public Policy Fellow at ANU in recognition of his extensive outreach activities. He has published more than 400 papers and patents, has won numerous national and international awards, and contributes to numerous review and granting panels. Leadership roles have included founder of the ANU photovoltaic group and research laboratories, Foundation Director of the Centre for Sustainable Energy Systems, Node Director of the ARENA Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics, Director of the ARC Centre for Solar Energy Systems, and Node Director of the Australian CRC for Renewable Energy. He was a lead inventor of PERC silicon solar cell technology (cumulative module sales of $50 billion) and co-inventor of Sliver solar cell technology (subject of a $240 million commercialisation effort by Transform solar including $11 million royalties paid to ANU). He has extensive project management experience, and has procured about $120 million in externally-sourced research-related funding for ANU. In recent years he has contributed to analysis of 100% renewable energy futures, including a global search for pumped hydro energy storage sites; see http://re100.eng.anu.edu.au/

Energy Storage

About the Meeting

Considering the COVID-19’s isolation protocols and quarantine circumstances, Energy Oceania is glad to launch the Renewable’s Innovation Series by building a unique online platform for the global renewable energy community to interact during these unprecedented times.

Energy Oceania presents it’s free-to-attend webinar on Current Energy Storage Technologies with prominent speaker line up where experts of the field will shed light on various aspects.

This Webinar provides the best platform for participants who would otherwise be unable to participate in events of this standard owing to:

  • (1) limited travel grants
  • (2) lack of time to travel to distant conference locations
  • (3) Insufficient accommodation and subsistence resources
