Midland talk addresses the energy revolution

July 31, 2018 by  

Next month, Paula Hansen of the Curtin University will present a talk on the continuing and rapid transformation of the area’s power and electricity network. The event will be held at the Midland Public Library located at 45 Helena Street, Midland.

The changes in technology and increasing availability of renewable energy to the community has seen a push towards cleaner power sources from some sectors of the country. Advocates of clean technology are looking at ways of decentralising power sources and lessening dependence on fossil fuel power plants, deemed a high polluting technology. Solar panels installed in individual premises is a prime example of the network decentralisation strategy, with electricity sources located on the roof of houses or buildings. The advent of Tesla batteries also shows promise in storing power, with ready availability for use by local consumers.

This event is presented as part of National Science Week 2018, which runs from August 11 to 19, with events held throughout the country. It celebrates scientific and technological advances with more than a thousand events in Australia. Started in 1997, the event showcases the contributions of local scientists to the global community. The event provides a venue for budding scientists and engineers to pursue their interests outside of the academic realm, and is the sort of occasion often promoted through poster printing.

The talk takes place on Saturday, August 18 from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon. For more information on the event and booking, go to the website.
