As the world fights issues related to climate change and global warming, the need for more sustainable sources of energy has become inevitable. Australia is no different. In fact, it stands at an advantage over the rest of the globe since it receives highest solar radiation per square meter of any other place in the world. It is therefore a natural reservoir of solar energy resource.
According to Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), solar energy generated close to 3.1 percent of Australia’s electricity in 2016-17.
