The Energy Hub idea was conceived by Wade, Brett and Leesa from Solmax. Solmax has been a partner in the Victorian Organic Solar Consortium (VICOSC) where Scott was previously the lead project scientist with CSIRO. The Energy Hub concept is well suited to printed and perovskite-based solar cells but in the short-term our aim is to get hubs into the field using commercially available, silicon or thin-film solar cells (CIGS). Information on how to wire the panels together, how they attach to the roof and how they weather will all be relevant to the ongoing research into printed solar cells by VICOSC and other researchers.
Wade co-founded Solmax, developed the original Aramax roofing system and has built many steel prototypes on his farm in central NSW.
