TTKD July meeting: The UQ Solar Array Project

Professor Paul Meredith will share with us his passion for large scale renewable energy, by discussing the amazing UQ 1.2 mega watt PV array project he has recently managed.

Paul has extensive experience in the renewable energy field, and currently is a Professor of Physics at UQ, a Vice Chancellor's Senior Research Fellow, and a co-founder and co-director of the Centre for Organic Photonics and Electronics.

We have blogged about the UQ solar array previously, see here. The 5000 panels that make up the array made it the largest flat panel solar array in the country when it opened. Paul might be able to tell us if that is still the case.

Also given the recent changes to the household solar PV feed-in tarrif due to the state governments' back-flip, we will have Garry Willet who works on the solar PV industry on hand to help answer questions about what this means for you and for the future of the solar PV industry in QLD.

As usual the meeting will be followed by supper and conversation. Please feel free to bring along a plate to share. No need to RSVP.

Thursday July 19
