Nick and Alex chat to Ned Ekins-Daukes from UNSW about their breakthrough to create solar energy in the dark.

This is a wide ranging chat about how solar panels could generate all of Australia's electricity at night, where climate solutions come from, the role of UNSW and universities in creating them, the legend of Martin Green, how to commercialise early stage technology, and a little lesson on the correct way to pronounce “solar photovoltaic”.
