This document, published in 2006, provides an overview of the available solar thermal technologies in Australia. Starting with underlining the potential Australia has in solar thermal development, the document also concludes that Australia has a low market penetration of only 5%.
An overview is also provided of the different technologies that are available spread over ‘low temperature systems for home and industry’ and ‘concentrating systems for high temperature process and power generation’. The document ends with an overview of activities in relation to developing and commercialising solar thermal technologies in Australia.
