A new project aimed at driving down the cost of renewable energy is expected to attract millions of dollars in licensing fees for the Australian National University. The world's largest manufacturer of solar cells, Trina Solar, and researchers at the ANU will work to increase the efficiency of solar cells during the ANU Solar project. The $10.7 million project, launched at the ANU yesterday, aims to keep Australia at the forefront of solar research. A Federal Government grant of $3.3 million from the Australian Solar Institute will go towards the project. The ANU will also work with the University of New South Wales during the project.
