Hi Millet, I thought that was interesting too.
If you click the link to the original abc.net .au news article,
it shows a demo bus stop made of energy harvesting glass.
I contacted the researcher on the project , so far the 300 square metre trial greenhouse hasn't been built yet.

Hi Millet.....No i have never heard of this trial..........relative to where i live in Perth...we dont need greenhouses at all.......in fact i use shadecloth on a regular basis...once it goes over 30C i have to shade cloth all my citrus and peach/nectarine/avocado/strawbs because they get cooked to death and we are not even in summer yet.......just before xmas we usually get a few 40 + C ...usually 42/43/44....so being a fat boy slim....i dont look forward to those times but Perth would be the perfect place to field test the technology.........most times of the 3 months of summer......we get no rain at all.
