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.
Australia can’t lose in the global race for cheaper, cleaner energy
Despite our sometimes heated national debate about our energy future, Australia is well positioned to benefit from innovative low emission […]
The solar panel and battery revolution: how will your state measure up?
A new report predicts a boom in household solar and batteries as Australia's electricity networks move to a more sustainable footing, with some states poised for a 500% boost in rooftop solar.
Heating up: Energy intelligence to tackle blackouts
What if we could avoid blackouts at times of peak demand by making more supply available while reducing the demand for electricity? Our Virtual Power Station project is investigating how to do just that!
Urban living under the microscope
The Urban Living Lab, a new collaboration with Celestino, will use the rigours of science to make the future of Australia's cities more liveable, resilient, and sustainable.
Australians can have zero-emission electricity, without blowing the bill
Faced with the rise of renewable energy and limits on carbon pollution, we suggest what kind of future awaits the grid.
Aussie solar know-how provides a ray of sunshine for China
They may look like bathroom mirrors and provide a great background for a selfie, but our solar thermal heliostat mirrors are hitting the world stage to help China meet its renewable energy targets.
Our Energy Centre gets a solar facelift
Our world-class Energy Centre has a had a face lift - sporting new solar photovoltaic technology which will save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 23 tonnes per annum.
Printed Solar Cells Rising: New co-operative flexes solar film’s potential
Our new research co-operative with Solafast and Norwood is advancing our printed solar films to make them a viable product for industry.
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’.
