In renewable energy alone, Australia has led the world in solar photovoltaic efficiency for decades, pioneered many improvements in solar water heaters and is now developing wave energy.
The latest issue of ReNew Magazine explores and celebrates homegrown green tech in its Australian-made Special.
ReNew looks at the DIY activists who started the renewables industry in Australia, researchers leading the world in solar cell design, the growing community energy sector and architects bringing sustainability into the mainstream of building design.
But there’s much more beyond the Australian-made theme: Enga Lokey and Robyn Deed write about what you can expect at a strawbale building workshop and talk to three strawbale owner-builders; Damien Moyse examines what solar households should consider after feed-in tariffs expire; and Julian de Hoog unlocks the value of battery storage.
Plus there’s rewilding in the city, recycling textiles, community energy, an Eco-Paint Buyers Guide and more!
