Taking charge of our lithium-ion battery waste
Australia recycles only 2% of its lithium-ion battery waste. Our new report has found ways to improve this statistic.
Hydro-next-gen: shifting hydrogen research to the fast lane
We can use Australia's vast energy resources to produce fuels like hydrogen. We're enabling this technology through a new Future Science Platform.
Footy finals and fuel cells: Powering the MCG
We’re working with MCG and EnergyAustralia on how fuel cells and battery storage can manage the stadium’s electricity consumption and reduce emissions.
Behind the scenes at our Energy Centre: Four virtual tours of the future of energy
Take a walk inside the future of energy? Here are four 360 virtual tours of our cutting-edge renewable energy centres.
‘Dis generation, powering the nation
Our Virtual Power Station project is ensuring that distributed generation sources (e.g. rooftop solar panels) can support our evolving electricity grid.
Lithium-ion batteries: what’s the charge?
Although our labs have been updated, our research question hasn't: how can we get reliable energy when we need it? This is where lithium-ion batteries can help.
Insane hydrogen membrane – extracting the fuel of the future
We have developed a metal membrane that could accelerate the roll-out hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, and potentially develop a new export market for Australia.
No sweat – hot tips for a cool summer
Here are some easy to implement, easy to adhere to tips for saving energy and staying cool this summer.
Energy pick n’ mix: are hybrid systems the next big thing?
What’s powering your home? Are you connected to the electricity grid? Do you have solar panels? A fuel cell? Perhaps a backyard wind turbine? It’s totally feasible to check all of these boxes: this is what's called a ‘hybrid energy system’.
A salty solution to solar after dark
When looking to store and use solar energy when it’s dark or cloudy, most people think of battery devices. But when it comes to powering cities we need to think much bigger – and saltier.
Virtual power to the people
Household solar is on the rise, which could potentially cause instability in our energy supply. So we're stepping in to bring some (virtual) power to the people
