The Zero Carbon Australia Buildings Plan research team is currently assessing the total solar potential of rooftops in Australia. Similar studies have been completed around the world. Germany’s SUN-AREA project estimates that solar photovoltaic (PV – solar panels) power could meet the entire energy needs of residential homes throughout the country. It is sponsored by the University of Osnabrück and the TOPSCAN topographical information company.

Project director and geomatics engineer Professor Martina Klärle, will join us via Skype video conference to present their findings. Detlef Gerdts, environmental manager for the city of Osnabrück will also be presenting the experiences with the results.

Time: 6:30- 8pm Monday 4 April 2011
