A joint venture between the Australian National University and Origin Energy has developed a new type of solar cell with the potential to revolutionise the global solar power industry.
Global fuel cell energy generating capacity will increase to near 16,000 megawatts (MW) by 2012 from a mere 45 MW in 2002. Although there is still only one true commercial stationary fuel cell product in the marketplace, the competition level has increased dramatically in the last year according to the latest study from Allied Business Intelligence (ABI).
