Eco living: To renovate or rebuild?
When it comes down to what’s greener, renovating often beats rebuilding. However, exactly what's done with the remodelled or rebuilt house makes an enormous difference.
It’s a brick house. But how energy efficient?
Around 11.4% of Australia’s emissions can be attributed to households, so we’re tracking home energy efficiency progress through a new data portal.
Eighteen countries showing the way to carbon zero
Reducing emissions doesn't have to conflict with a growing economy, as these 18 developed nations show.
A data-driven energy future is NEAR
We’re no longer in the dark about Australia’s energy use. A data-driven future is near, meaning we can make informed decisions about our energy future.
You’ve got the power! Keeping our electricity during a heatwave
With warm weather making itself known, how will our electricity grid cope with the pressures of increasingly extreme weather? How do we moderate our energy consumption if there’s a chance power supplies can’t cope with our needs?
Hyper for hydrogen: our world first for carbon-free fuel
For the first time in the world, a hydrogen car has been powered by a fuel derived from ammonia, thanks to our hydrogen membrane tech. And now that tech is being commericalised to help bring a hydrogen industry closer to reality.
Real hot city? Our science has the Dar-winning solution
Darwin residents will be working with our scientists as we help develop sustainable cities of the future.
How hydrogen power can help us cut emissions, boost exports, and even drive further between refills
Hydrogen has several advantages over other energy carriers, such as batteries. It is a single product that can service multiple markets and, if produced using low- or zero-emissions energy sources, it can help us significantly cut greenhouse emissions.
Lighting up Australia’s energy future: the CSIRO Energise app needs you
CSIRO Energise is our new app that makes you a citizen scientist, telling us about your power usage and helping illuminate Australia's energy landscape, which at the moment is in the dark.
Teams of scientists + business mentors = ON Demo Night 2018
What happens when you pair up teams of scientists with business mentors and set them developing for three months? ON Accelerate.
Making it personal – how your home could help power the electricity grid
Your very own household battery could support Australia’s future electricity grid by leveling energy demand and creating consistent and reliable power quality.
