CSIRO's research is focused on the following:


Energymark is helping households and communities reduce their carbon footprints, lower energy consumption and save on power bills.

Energy modelling

Guiding Australia towards a low carbon future using knowledge of technology, economy, people and the earth.

To address the enormous challenge of climate change, we need the collective action of individuals, communities, companies and government.

CSIRO is working at each of these levels to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help develop technologies, change behaviours and map the pathway to a clean, viable and secure energy future.

In the future we will need to provide cleaner energy to a larger, energy-hungry population. We will need to improve the current technologies we use and find new ones. And we will need to change the way we operate in business, government, as communities and at home. 

CSIRO is modelling the options for achieving this goal and giving industry and individuals the knowledge and tools they need to make a difference.
