Blakers invented the technology with colleague Dr Klaus Weber and developed it with funding from energy supplier Origin Energy and the Australian Research Council.

Blakers and Klaus Weber won the Australian Institute of Physics' Walsh Medal for their solar research work.

He was 2012 state finalist for the Australian of the year award, in the Australian Capital Territory.
