A Vision for the Murdoch University School of Engineering

Research for Solar Hot Water Systems

In our last article, we touched on the valuable contribution of Solar E to the research carried out at Murdoch University in the School of Engineering. Garry Baverstock holds the position of Adjunct Professor at the School and has held discussions with the School’s Head regarding creating a niche market on research for solar hot water systems and new generation solar air conditioners. This is an area where other main stream Universities are not focusing, any resources at present.

An outcome that will arise in this current work at Murdoch University will be to collaborate with some of the bigger University’s Schools of Engineering and expand research into more viable products. This could be a catalyst for some undergraduate studies being set up at Murdoch, particularly in building services engineering with the possibility of setting up a small School of Mechanical Engineering that will focus on and advance practical solutions in solar systems and air conditioners.

Solar Water Heaters

The next three years will see Wise Earth writing papers on the effectiveness and efficiency of mainstream solar water heaters; their real economics and how much greenhouse gases they actually save. Wise Earth has donated its data base from Solar Kleen, a business it ran for a couple of years. This real data together with generic data from the Clean Energy Council will apply Monte Carlo Analysis; a technique using distribution curves that can infer and project results using limited data; that can be used for further research on solar water heating and energy.

Masters of Building Services Engineering

Murdoch University has a long history of Photo Voltaic research which is on-going and this is working towards the creation of a Masters of Building Services Engineering. With Garry being an adjunct Professor and also in the business in this field with Wise Earth; specific projects can be generated for the Masters and PhD studies and encourage other Universities to do the same.

Solar Energy Directory – Get Solar Campaign

Solar energy directoryGet Solar Energy 

solar energy directory listing from ‘Get Solar’ helps the public choose solar energy products and services with confidence – this is the basis of the ‘Get Solar’ message. We know that changing government policies and shifting compliance standards have created uncertainty for the solar energy markets.

We will offer more certainty to the public and the consumer by joining together to present a united message of quality and reliable information on solar energy products and services via the solar energy directory.

To list your products and services please go to Get Solar Solar Energy Directory.

AuSES Promotes Solar Energy Industry

The CEO of Australian Solar Energy Society (‘AuSES’), John Grimes has been representing our immense collective technical knowledge and corporate base within the organization at a political level. We in the solar energy industry must support these efforts for the well-being of the public, our environment and our industry.

Get Solar Promotes Solar Energy Growth

The ‘Get Solar’ campaign which aims to increase the use of solar energy and stimulate growth opportunities for solar energy industry companies, recognises that AuSES is a solid cornerstone of solar energy promotion and awareness, but we also recognise that it cannot do everything. By developing the ‘Get Solar’ solar energy directory we are creating a new industry collaborative effort.

Solar Energy Companies Can Collaborate

Apart from individual lobbying and marketing enterprise, solar industries can collaborate effectively with a common commercial focus in the market place. Today we need industry collaboration more than ever. Offering comprehensive information in a single solar energy directory will help focus our message.

Solar Industry Needs Reliable Markets

While AuSES carries out its important functions at the junction of industry, academia and government regulation, more is needed to help the solar industry and associated professions to develop stronger and more reliable markets.

Solar Energy Directory Offers Confidence to the Public

The ‘Get Solar’ Campaign directory is now alive: Go to our  Get Solar solar energy directory and enter your details. We need your involvement and the participation of all sectors of the solar energy industry and associated professions in this solar energy directory.

The general public must approach the purchase of solar energy products and services with confidence in our quality and professionalism, hence the ‘Get Solar’ campaign. The campaign promotes solar energy companies as well as associated services to the public, in a manner where they can trust the quality and services offered in the solar energy directory and be able to make informed choices. Having the endorsement of peak industry bodies to your listing offers extra confidence.

List Your Solar Energy Business

List your business details in the Get Solar solar energy directory. The categories of listings are flexible at this stage and the administrator of  the ‘Get Solar’ directory will consider increasing the list of categories if requested.

Free Listings in the Get Solar Directory

Currently listings are free even for premium accounts. It only takes the investment of time and effort by your sales and marketing people to add your company details and contact points.

Go to ‘Get Solar’ solar energy directory to create your listing today.

AuSES Support

Companies listed in the AuSES database will be contacted by AuSES administration to explain the opportunity to include their business in the ‘Get Solar’ solar energy directory and they will provide endorsement of this important initiative. With strong ties and allegiances to peak organizations such as AuSES, we believe that the ‘Get Solar’ campaign can complement the focus that AuSES provides and offer confidence to the public and consumer.

Solar Energy Directory Offers Customer Confidence  

Creation of a new synergy will help consumers, industrial, commercial, and institutional entities to have the confidence to commit to solar energy systems and strategies.

With AuSES endorsement you can’t afford not to be in this solar energy directory, so take action today and join the effort to tell the public GET SOLAR, and know where to go to get it…
