We imagine. We collaborate. We innovate.
The Solar Technologies team is the core solar science and engineering capability for Australia’s National Science Agency, and the CSIRO Solar Group.
The team works across a portfolio of Research, Development and Demonstration (R&D+D) projects with significant client activities within the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) including leadership of the Australian Solar Thermal Research Institute (ASTRI). We are the largest solar research effort within CSIRO, with over 50 group members of full-time engineers, scientists, visiting scientists, students and affiliates, who bring together a multi-disciplinary research team of mechanical and software engineers, optical and device physicists, material and physical chemists, chemical process and electrical engineers.
We are building strong collaborative relationships, solving the greatest scientific challenges, and delivering on long-term objectives for Australia, through innovative science, engineering and solar technologies.
