Solar power: energy from the sun
CSIRO is a world leader in solar research. As renewable energy becomes more and more important to lowering greenhouse gas emissions, CSIRO is making solar power more efficient and effective.
Renewable Energy Integration Facility
Researchers at the Renewable Energy Integration Facility are examining new grid design and operation techniques that can significantly transform electricity networks.
CSIRO is developing new technologies and systems which use solar thermal energy to provide low emission cooling - or heating - for buildings and refrigeration for food storage.
Mr Paul Graham: energy economist
Mr Paul Graham, an economist with expertise in energy market analysis, forecasting and economic modelling, is interested in the role and flexibility of technology in managing risk.
UltraBattery: no ordinary battery
This innovative advancement on conventional battery design from the Energy Transformed National Research Flagship delivers low cost, long life, high performance power and provides a solution for future energy storage needs.
Fugitive emissions from coal seam gas
Coal seam gas (CSG) is a rapidly expanding industry in Australia but at present there is very little measurement based information available regarding fugitive emissions from the CSG production process.
Improving ventilation and thermal comfort in buildings
The combination of modelling expertise, experimentally-based data and CSIRO software is helping to address ventilation and thermal issues in built environments. The technology is producing gains in energy efficiency and the health of indoor environment.
