  • ''(ii) Ausra’s innovations in mirror systems have brought the price of solar power down to the level of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gas-fired gas-fired] power and is expected soon to be price competitive with [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal coal-fired] power, and''
  • ''(iii) the plant will produce 700 MW a year in solar thermal power systems for the American Southwest;''
  • ''(b) congratulates the founder of Ausra, world-renowned, Dr David Mills, for this development and for his longstanding solar technology innovation at the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Sydney University of Sydney], including:''
  • ''(i) the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evacuated_tube_solar_hot_water_heater evacuated tube solar water heater technology] that is now in use in 60 per cent of these units worldwide,''
  • ''(ii) the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compact_Linear_Fresnel_Reflector Compact Linear Fresnel Reflector] for use in solar thermal energy,''

  • ''(c) regrets that the economic benefits of this important innovation in renewable, clean, base load power have been lost to Australia; and''
  • ''(d) urges the Government to:''
  • ''(i) recognise that Australia, like Nevada and California, has excellent sources of solar energy from which to generate solar thermal base load power, and''
  • ''(ii) provide the necessary incentives for the technology to also be established in Australia.''
