Australian Solar Institute
ASI was established to keep Australia, which was already considered a global leader in solar research, at the forefront of solar innovation. The Australian Government provided ASI with $150 million to invest in activities that aimed to reduce the cost, and increase the competitiveness of, photovoltaic and concentrating solar power technologies.
ASI developed a portfolio approaching $450 million in value from the initial $150 million, supporting over 350 solar researchers across more than 120 projects.
