Carbon Tax in Australia and Solar Hot Water

     A bill proposing carbon tax in Australia has recently been passed as of October 2011. This bill is known as the Clean Energy Bill, 2011 and has been tasked with goals to reduce carbon emissions through an emissions trading scheme and overall, reduce global warming. Since Australia is one of the world’s top carbon producers with approximately 500 000 tones of carbon pollution each year, they have elected to form measures and regulations to reduce these emissions. The Carbon Tax in Australia ensures that large-scale polluters are paying a price proportional to the amount of environmental damage caused. Now there is a new cost for businesses in Australia, in addition to worrying about materials and labor, they must now factor in the cost of carbon pollution. To succeed in the local and global marketplace, Australian businesses must reduce pollution in all their products, especially very energy intensive ones.

There is a clean, abundant, carbon-free form of energy available all across Australia; the sun. Technologies to harvest the sun’s energy can be used to reduce payments under the new carbon tax in Australia. Solar hot water is the process of using technology to transfer the heat from the sun into hot water for use in a variety of purposes. Domestic hot water use, such as hot water for cooking, bathing, and cleaning is a very effective application of solar hot water. Homes, apartment complexes and other residences will benefit from reducing their fees under the new carbon tax in Australia. Through absorption chiller technology in place, solar hot water can be used for air conditioning and cooling. Given Australia’s climate, there is a significant amount of carbon pollution from this task alone.

Finally and most significantly is the use of industrial process heat. So many industries use hot water every day in their daily operation. From textile mills, to chemical manufacturing, to beverage manufacturing, there will be a large new cost associated with the carbon tax in Australia. If a company were not to change their carbon usage, they can face fees of $23 a tone. This fee can greatly cut into profits, making what was once a highly profitable industry no longer worth it.

There exists a solar hot water system effective for all these purposes; the Solar Beam Concentrator from Solartron Energy Systems. This device is a parabolic concentrator with two-axis tracking capabilities; it follows the sun across the sky each day with 0.1 degree accuracy. It is durable, powerful and reliable, as it has been certified to Australian Global Mark standards, as well as SRCC certification in the USA, CSA certification in Canada and Key mark standards in Europe. People all across the world trust the Solar Beam. The system produces hot water up to 93oC (200F), this makes the creation of stream minimally dependent on carbon. A tiny amount of fuel will tip the water to the boiling point after it has been treated to the Solar Beam’s heat energy. The ease of installation makes is useful for residential, commercial and industrial applications; it only takes a couple of days, with simple labor, to install and benefit from the sun’s rays beaming down to Australia every day.
