Rather than focusing specifically on improving the quality of renewable power sources in only the developed world, the 23-year-old PhD student at UNSW’s School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering argues that everyone should be included in the environmental movement. Since eco-friendly power sources tend to be more expensive than traditional methods, the ability to promote these technologies in low-income areas is difficult.
However, with the use of a low-temperature process of printing solar cells, which the speaker has created, Kuepper believes that solar technology can become more accessible to people in less wealthy nations around the world.
