Australia’s growth and way of life is underpinned by access to affordable and sustainable energy sources. Find out more about our diverse portfolio of research.
Improving energy efficiency through the development of intelligent models, systems and management tools which change the way energy is used and transmitted in homes, buildings and industry.
You can save energy in your home using science and simple techniques. Find out how you can save money and reduce your carbon footprint.
We are developing more efficient and sustainable fossil fuel technologies and helping industry to safely access and extract Australia's rich resources, including oil, gas and coal.
Hydraulic fracturing, also commonly referred to as fraccing, is a method used by the oil and gas industry to increase the rate and total amount of oil and gas extracted from reservoirs.
We are using solar energy to generate hot and pressurised ‘supercritical’ steam, at the highest temperatures in the world, outside of fossil fuel sources.
We are leading the way in the development of low cost, environmentally friendly production methods and flexible materials that could change how and where photovoltaic energy can be generated.
