Inside a warehouse in the middle of the woods, a team of volunteers is taking part in a project to install solar panels on roof tiles.
They are part of a nationwide project to cut down on energy bills.
They’ve already installed the first batch of panels on a warehouse roof.
The project is part of the initiative to cut electricity bills by more than a third by 2020.
“It is the most radical way of dealing with the problem we face,” says João Pascual, head of the project.
Solar panels are the most efficient form of energy conversion, producing power that can be stored and used on demand.
The idea is to use solar power to make up for the fact that people in inner-urban areas are burning more coal, oil and gas to heat their homes and offices.
But the panels, which are designed to last 30 years, are a relatively new technology.

Solar panels can’t replace conventional electricity, because they require expensive, polluting and dangerous equipment to generate electricity.
They can, however, be used to generate a small amount of electricity when the sun is shining, as long as the panels are installed close to a power station.
Most of the world is now in a transition to solar power, which has reduced the need for traditional fossil fuels.
In Australia, the Australian Solar Council (ASCC) says the total amount of installed solar capacity has more than doubled over the past decade.
Its solar PV project, the State Grid, is the largest in the country and it currently has a total of more than 12GW installed across the country.
There are other projects in the pipeline to help meet Australia’s energy needs.
A consortium of Chinese developers is planning to build the first solar power plant in China’s far western province of Guizhou.
Australian energy giant Westpac has set up an “indigenous” solar energy project in the northern Australian town of Tuggeranong.
These projects are being run by a consortium of Indian solar energy companies, and will be part of India’s ambitious solar energy drive.
However, the majority of these projects are not in Australia, as the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) reports the country has the largest installed installed solar PV capacity of any country.
In Australia, solar energy accounts for just 4 per cent of total energy production, but it accounts for 40 per cent in emissions.
India’s solar energy growth in the past year has been fuelled by two developments: the announcement that the country is planning a major solar energy expansion and the installation of its largest solar project in New Delhi.
As a result, India’s energy industry has doubled its solar capacity over the last five years.
With solar PV growing rapidly, the world’s energy infrastructure needs to be designed to take advantage of the energy it generates.
Australia has set the stage for the country to become a major hub for solar energy.
It has more solar energy than China, and is leading the way in terms of energy efficiency, which is a measure of how efficiently electricity is generated.
Energy Efficiency Australia says that its solar PV projects are responsible for cutting Australia’s electricity consumption by 13 per cent over the next 10 years.
“Solar PV has played a big role in the development of Australia’s national energy strategy,” said David Pritchard, the chief executive of Energy Efficiency Australia.
And it’s not just India that is taking notice.
Earlier this month, the UK launched a national programme to help build solar power stations, with a focus on developing renewable energy in rural areas.
Last year, a US-based solar developer built a power plant that will be used in the first US solar thermal plants to generate energy for the first time.
New Zealand is also setting out to take on the challenge of becoming a major global solar power market.
To meet the growing demand for electricity, Australia will have to become even more efficient, more efficient in its use of energy, and more energy efficient in how it uses energy.
